Some of the most accomplished women in our country, led by the First Lady Michelle Obama, have come together to launch a movement, a summit, The United State of Women. The website states:
There’s a lot that’s been done by and for women and girls, but there’s still plenty to do. Convened by the White House, this Summit will rally all of us together to celebrate what we’ve achieved, and how we’re going to take action moving forward. Covering key gender equality issues, we’ll make a powerful difference in our collective future.
