This video is basically our adult squad goals. A group of diverse, driven, successful women are slaying the feminism game. Short of Taylor Swift, what more could we ask for?
Michelle Obama, Oprah, Kerry Washington, Meryl Streep, Laverne Cox, Jessica Williams, Shonda Rhimes and Tina Fey are only some of the women showcased in this call to ‘change tomorrow’ and we are SO sold! In addition to its star-studded cast, the video also includes CEOs, female sports icons and women’s rights activists. Where does the perfection stop?
The ad’s a promotion for the upcoming first-ever United State of Women Summit at the White House on June 14th, hosted by none other than Michelle Obama and Oprah. Because, honestly, who else?
The women will discuss how far women’s rights have come in their lifetimes, the challenges they’ve faced in their careers, and the equality issues still prevalent today. The event itself is sold out (obviously. You saw who’s involved.) but it will be livestreamed for those of us who weren’t able to snatch one of the 5,000 tickets, so we can watch and be inspired too.
The preliminary schedule for the summit details six topics of discussion: economic empowerment, health and wellness, educational opportunity, violence against women, entrepreneurship and innovation, as well as leadership and civic engagement.
Before the event, you can head to the United State of Women website and take the pledge to join the #StateOfWomen and make a better tomorrow. They even have a photo generator with filters to show how you’re going to change the world (because they believe you can). Oh the empowerment!
Seriously, check out the website. Not only do they have some amazing resources, but you know Michelle Obama wants you to check it out, which should be enough of a reason on its own.
We can’t wait to see what June 14th will hold after having a little taste of the summit!
