The United State of Women Summit will be live-streaming from The White House Tuesday, with speakers ranging from President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama to advocates for women and celebrities such as Amy Poehler.
Speakers will present on topics such as educational equality, economic empowerment, preventing violence against women, female leadership and other issues related to gender equity. Programs will run until 7 p.m. EST.
The First Lady revealed the initiative earlier in June in a launch video that included Oprah Winfrey, Kerry Washington and Tina Fey, who argued for pay equality and reproductive rights. Events relating to the United State of Women are happening nationwide today.
“We are the United State of Women,” Michelle Obama said in the video. “We stand stronger when we stand together.”
