Michelle Obama speaks at the 40th Anniversary of the National Partnership for Women and Families

First Lady Michelle Obama was the keynote speaker this afternoon at the 40th anniversary gala of the National Partnership for Women and Families. The organization helps to promote fairness in the workplace and policies that help women meet the demands of work and family. 
We need you, because even today, with all the advances that we've made, too many women face barriers and roadblocks for reaching their full potential.  Too many girls are held back by narrow expectations and limited options. So it is our job to just keep working not just for us, but for them.  We’ve got to make sure that we do everything we can so that our daughters and granddaughters can pick up wherever we leave off, which leads to the other part of what I want to talk to you about, and that is the people we need to get this job done. - Michelle Obama
