7/30🇺🇸#FirstLady #Michelle #Obama addresses the Summit of the Washington Fellowship for #YoungAfricanLeaders “The truth is, I don’t think it’s really productive to talk about issues, like girls’ education, unless we’re willing to have a much bigger, bolder conversation about how women are viewed and treated in the world today,” #FLOTUS said. #MrsObama said men worldwide needed to “look into their hearts and souls and ask if they truly view women as their equals.” #MrsO continued “I am who I am today b/c of the people in my family, particularly the men in my family, who valued me and invested in me from the day I was born. And as I grew up, the men who raised me set a high bar for the type of men I’d allow into my life - which is why I went on to marry a man who had the good sense to fall in love with a woman who was his equal, to treat me as such (at Washington, DC)
