This Amazing New White House Video Feels So Good. [Watch]

June 2016 is shaping up to be quite the month for gender equality.

Because, well, this happened, of course…

…which is clearly nothing to sneeze at.

But also, many of the biggest female trailblazers in modern American history raised the bar in a big way for the next generation. And they used a two-minute video to do it.

The United State of Women Summit is set to take place June 14, 2016, at the White House.

And a new star-studded video promoting the summit’s bold, forward-thinking message (sprinkled with a few laughs) is making waves across the web.

So clearly, we have a long way to go. Just ask Tina Fey.

The video is just a teaser really. The summit itself is where advocates will role up their sleeves.

The United State of Women video — which also features TV powerhouse Shonda Rhimes, trailblazing NFL coachJen Welter, and business leader Tory Burch, among several others — lays the groundwork for what’s on the agenda June 14.

The event will bring big wigs and thought leaders together to take these tough issues head on — from economic empowerment and access to education to expanding health care and curbing gender-based violence. The summit will largely serve as a “rallying cry” for women to stand in solidarity with one another and to make changes for generations to come, according to press release.

If there was ever a month to jump on the bandwagon for gender equality, June 2016 seems like the right one. Learn more about the United State of Women summit, and take the pledgeto do your part today.
