As we reported on Monday, First Lady Michelle Obama did a Twitter Town Hall about her Let's Move! initiative. What's impressive is is just how sharp the First Lady looks given that her plans were to sit behind a computer screen and use Twitter. Gotta love Michelle!

First Lady Michelle Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry awarded the the International Women of Courage Award to nine women who are standing up for what is right:

When these women witnessed horrific crimes or the disregard for basic human rights they spoke up, risking everything they had to see that justice was done.  When they saw their communities or their countries were ignoring issues like sexual violence or women’s rights, they gave those issues a face and a voice.  And with every act of strength and defiance, with every blog post, with every community meeting, these women have inspired millions to stand with them, and find their own voices, and work together to achieve real and lasting change.

We've got the full video below. First Lady Michelle's part starts at 4:15:
