Michelle Obama on Women’s Rights

“In my lifetime, and I’m not that old, it was perfectly legal for empoyers to discriminate against women…women were not allowed to make fundamental decisions about their bodies. And practically speaking, many still can’t… And today, it is so easy to take for granted all the kinds of progress we’ve made on these issues. But the fact is, that today, so many of these rights are under threat from all sides. Always at risk of being rolled back if we let our guard down for a single minute…” -Michelle Obama.
