Empowering All Women to Reach Their Full Potential
Today is International Women’s Day, and I can think of no better way to mark it than with all the different events this week around women’s empowerment. President Obama has made promoting gender equality and advancing the status of women and girls central to our foreign policy and national security strategy, including by leading by example at home . A few events this week highlighted the theme of women’s empowerment: Today, the First Lady attended the International Women of Courage Awards at the Department of State with Secretary Kerry, an annual event that recognizes the incredible strength and courage of women from around the world – women who have stood up for our most basic rights, even when it meant risking their own safety.  The First Lady emphasized that we must not only stand with these women and their efforts, but also use their example as a guide as we work to lift up the women and girls in our own communities.
