Just in time for Women’s History Month, our former First Lady Michelle Obama will be inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame.
According to reports, Michelle will headline the 2021 class of women when they’re formally inducted on October 2. Joining FLOTUS will be former PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi, American soccer icon Mia Hamm, renowned science-fiction writer Octavia Butler and artists Joy Harjo and Judy Chicago.
The organization released a statement sharing the big announcement:
“Both in and out of the White House, Michelle Obama has accomplished her initiatives and so much more—becoming an advocate for healthy families, service members and their families, higher education, international adolescent girls’ education, and serving as a role model for women and young girls everywhere.
Congrats to Michelle Obama!
