Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture and society. Equal Opportunity Schools celebrates women of color, like Michelle Obama, the first African-American First Lady of the United States, an attorney, author, and education advocate for adolescent girls. As First Lady, Obama championed causes such as Let’s Move (ending childhood obesity), Reach Higher Initiative (job opportunities), and Joining Forces (supporting service members, veterans and military families). Obama is set to be inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame.
Join us in honoring Michelle Obama by leaving a tribute on our social media channels @EqualOppSchools.
