Before she leaves the White House Michelle Obama is issuing a call to arms to end gender equality — and is joining forces with some of the most influential women in the country to do so!
FLOTUS — along with A-list woman entertainers, activists, and business executives — has announced a White House summit for the United State of Women, which sets to tackle gender-equality issues later this month.
Joining the First Lady in an empowering announcement video are stars like Oprah Winfrey, Meryl Streep, Tina Fey, Kerry Washington, Connie Britton, and Laverne Cox!

The June 14 summit will address issues like economic empowerment, health and wellness, educational opportunity, violence against women, entrepreneurship, and civic engagement.
Though the event is already maxed out, the entire summit will be livestreamed at the United State of Women’s website!
