Happy International Women’s Day! This past year, we’ve seen just how much women accomplish every single day—they’ve been the ones putting in overtime as frontline healthcare workers, taking on activist roles in their communities, and stepping up to care for their families during these tough times. It’s awe inspiring. And what gives me so much hope is that the next generation of women are just as determined, especially as they pursue their education in the face of great challenges and a rapidly changing educational landscape.
That’s why I couldn’t be more excited to celebrate girls’ education on Thursday, March 25, with POPSUGAR. I’ll be speaking with Lilly Singh and girls from the Girls Opportunity Alliance as they share what their education has looked like during the pandemic and how organizations in our global community have helped them to keep learning safely.
This issue is so important to me, because we know that girls around the world were already facing challenges to their education, and those challenges only get tougher during times like these. Early studies predict that an additional 20 million girls of secondary school age may never return to school due to ripple effects from the pandemic. We can’t let that happen. These girls deserve an education worthy of their potential, and the world deserves the full expression of their brilliance, talent, and ideas.
So I hope you’ll tune in on March 25 and support girls’ education and empowerment today through the Girls Opportunity Alliance Fund. This week, we added three new projects from grassroots organizations that help girls access virtual learning, learn about their health, and stay in school.
International Women’s Day is the perfect time to support girls around the world, so take action however you can—because when girls get the opportunities they deserve, we all benefit.
Make a gift today to support girls around the world:
Today is a historic day. 56 years ago, marchers armed only with their courage crossed a bridge in Selma, Alabama, determined to fight for a more just future. When President Obama honored those marchers on that same bridge 50 years later, he delivered a speech that not only captured his idea of what America should be, but one that called on each generation to take up the baton and build on the legacies of those who came before.
This selection also speaks to one of the themes of the Obama Presidential Center Museum: the power of words. Visitors will learn more about the movements that inspired President Obama to come to the South Side, see how that history shaped the Obama presidency, and be asked to reflect on how their own story fits into the ongoing work of creating a better future for all.
