Chelsea Clinton joins 100 Women as Newshour guest editor

Chelsea Clinton grew up in public, in a spotlight that has never really dimmed.

Her father, Bill Clinton, was governor of Arkansas when she was born, and would later spend two terms in the White House as US president.

Her mother, Hillary Rodham Clinton, ran for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008, before eventually serving as secretary of state under Barack Obama. She is widely tipped to run again in 2016.

As part of the BBC's 100 Women season, Chelsea Clinton joined the team for Newshour on the BBC World Service to guest-edit the programme.

She told Razia Iqbal about her reflections on growing up in the spotlight, as well as her commitment to ending the global trade in ivory, and her concern for maternal health around the world.

During October, the 100 Women season is aiming to look at the risks, challenges and opportunities women face around the world today.

As well as Chelsea Clinton, Newshour will be guest-edited by a series of other high profile women this week:
