Wednesday, March 8, was International Women’s Day. Former First Lady Michelle Obama and current First Lady Melania Trump celebrated in very different ways. Former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton also celebrated International Women’s Day in her own way.
Michelle Obama paid a surprise visit to a combined middle school and high school, the Cardozo Education Campus in Washington D.C., to talk with students and celebrate the day.
On Instagram, she wrote:
“Celebrating the beauty and diversity of our country on this #InternationalWomensDay with some of the many fierce and promising girls here at DC’s Cardozo Education Campus. I loved visiting this school because it tells the American story in so many ways. Three years ago, Cardozo established its International Academy with only 150 students, but today it boasts nearly 400 who are thriving in and out of the classroom. By embracing young immigrants and their diverse cultures and contributions, Cardozo is a model for our entire country. The girls I met with today are ready to take on the world. We’ve just got to make sure that the world is ready for them.”

Hillary Clinton took to Snapchat, where she said:
“There’s a lot to fight for: Planned Parenthood, education, healthcare, jobs. Every issue is a woman’s issue. So stand up, resist, run for office, be a champion.”
She also changed her profile picture with a red background and the symbol for the Women’s March.
Melania Trump had a luncheon to celebrate, which sounds good. However, her guest list only included Ivanka Trump, Billionaire Betsy DeVos, Billionaire Linda McMahon, Kellyanne Conway, Karen “Mother” Pence, and Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME).
I’m glad to see Michelle Obama still out there and helping people. I’m sure she has inspired many women out there with her intelligence and grace. Melania treated the day like a rich women’s bridge club.
