Michelle Obama, Oprah and Tina Fey Are Giving Us the Women's Summit We Deserve
Dream team: Michelle Obama, Oprah, Tina Fey, Meryl Streep, Jessica Williams, Laverne Cox, Connie Britton... a cast of very impressive ladies assembled to launch the United State of Women, a White House summit on women's issues scheduled for June 14.
"We are the United State of Women," the First Lady says in an Instagrammed video featuring all the aforementioned names and more, "and we stand stronger when we stand together."
Issues addressed at the summit include economic empowerment, health and wellness, educational opportunity, violence against women, entrepreneurship and innovation, and leadership and civic engagement. There's also a string of related events planned across the country to get women nationwide involved. The aim is to rally women to make actionable change in the gender equality arena.
"Together we got this," Williams says in the video. "We got this."
