Be there for one another, Mitchelle Obama counsels women
As the world celebrates the Womens History Month, former US First Lady, Mitchelle Obama, has said that it is up to women to be there for one another, if they hope to make all the difference in the world.
According to her, this can only be achieved when women choose to impact on another woman’s life, by showing genuine interest in other women’s growth and development.
She captioned a video on Instagram thus: “As I read through your feedback on my book, one theme that keeps popping up is how to empower the women around us—whether that’s our girlfriends, coworkers, or the women we see at the gym or at happy hour. Empowering each other is a big question and can take a lot of forms, but one thing I know is that it’s up to us to be there for each other—especially those who often feel overlooked—because when someone shows genuine interest in your growth and development, it can make all the difference in the world.
“So for#WomensHistoryMonth, I want you to let me know how you’re making an impact on another woman’s life. Whether that’s joining a mentoring program, asking your boss about how they’re planning to get more women’s voices at the table, or simply taking 10 minutes to lend an ear to your coworker over coffee, I want to hear what you’re up to!”
