International Women of Courage Award

Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton pose with the 7 award recipients.
Barack Obama yesterday announced the creation of a White House Council for Women and Girls. Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama presented the State Department's Award for International Women of Courage to "seven female activists from Afghanistan, Guatemala, Iraq, Malaysia, Niger, Russia and Uzbekistan who have fought to end discrimination and inequality."
I keep getting reminded of what an amazing country we live in.
