Michelle Obama called on young African leaders to change traditional attitudes and beliefs that harm girls and women, adding that educating and making women financially literate is not enough.
No country can ever truly flourish if it stifles the potential of its women and deprives itself of the contributions of half of its citizens, Mrs. Obama said.
The first lady spoke Wednesday to the inaugural class of young African fellows who are getting six weeks of leadership training in the United States as part of the Mandela Washington Fellowship.

but did she mention that they should be liberal on trans-whatever issues, and have 56 different gender identities, and give special status to those who have had sex change operations???
“Blacks are sexist” - Moochelle.
I am so sick of this witch. Can we fast-forward to January 2017?
Did she say women up half the sky?
Is Moochie trying to soften the blow when both she and Bathhouse Barry admit that...
didn’t they take a family trip to Africa at taxpayer expense a few years ago??? why didn’t she ask as much when she met world leaders face-to-face?? why didn’t obama pose this question when he gave his speech at mandela’s funeral??
oh, forget- the obama’s are cowards...
Nobody wants to see your sausage, Mooshell.
“Mandela Washington Fellowship”
Are they learning about the correct application of tires and gasoline?
She borrowed the phrase she quoted in the article...phrase...can’t remember who said it before her...she should have least given credit to who it was deserved in her “rights” statements.
They’re figuring out a way to do “green” necklacing, obviously.
People do not have gender. Words have gender. “She” is female gender. “His” is male gender. People have sex. A person’s sex is male or female. The sexual act is something different. An eighty year old nun has sex. She is female. I am sick of the way our language has been corrupted. Michelle 0bama is a dumb broad.
Consider the anti-women lyrics of many rappers, then ask why they were invited to parties at the White House.
Dont tell the abbess, whatever you do.
An eighty year old nun has sex.
stifles the potential of its women and deprives itself of the contributions of half of its citizens
I guess that’s why muslim countries are screwed.
Uh, she was only referring the Democrat women. Republican women “need not apply.”
Didn’t know that there were African divisions of the Republican and Democratic Parties. But I understand your point.
You know, the war on women that Democrats have gone on ad nauseam?
She, Obama and others like to take jabs at the US when talking to foreign people in foreign countries. Foreign countries who treat their citizens horribly. I am used to this and it was a knee jerk reaction. My bad.
Saw a tee shirt paraded at a walk in clinic.
‘Give me a minute while I pretend to care’
Flaunting belligerence and bedecking 300 pounds of female double minority status proudly. Don’t swell their heads any further meshell.
