Michelle Obama has made it one of her goals to promote feminism across the globe. It's about time that someone took a stand on this issue. In many third world countries, women are nothing more than property, luggage, baby-makers, dish-washer, etc... In the middle east, they use the guise of religion to continue the inhumane treatment of women, but this must stop. American women especially need to take a stand against this and help educate the rest of the world. I'm glad to see the first lady leading the pack.
