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:

As part of her Let's Move! third anniversary tour, First Lady Michelle Obama hosted a fireside chat with Kelly Ripa about the importance of kids' health. You can watch the event or just check out some of the pictures. A couple of notable points that the First Lady made were:

  • Eating dinner together as a family helps keep kids healthy.
  • "We should be talking in terms of health, not how people look."
  • We have to think long-term. Change won't happen overnight. "If they start these healthy habits now, we're looking at what kind of kids they're going to be when they're headed to college."
