'Let Girls Learn' Event
Well, in celebration of International Women's Day, first lady Michelle Obama welcomed some young ladies to the White House to tour the "Let Girls Learn" bus.
Mrs. Obama spoke to dozens of adolescent girls -- all part of the let girls learn initiative. The initiative is a government-wide effort to help the more than 62 million girls around the world ...half of whom are adolescent, and all of whom are not in school, go to school, and stay in school.
More than 40 countries have signed on to become Peace Corps Let Girls Learn countries.
