Obama then reminded the public of the "Girls Opportunity Alliance" that was created for assisting girls around the world who are facing education challenges of any kind.

The International Women's Day, which is celebrated yearly on the 8th of March, is widely seen as a day to celebrate the several accomplishments of women all over the world.

Then she commended the three volunteers with whom she posed with in the photo, for visiting the program all around the world to witness its power and progress.

Michelle Obama also mentioned the launching of a new YouTube original series through which the three volunteers, Liza Koshy, Prajakta Koli, and Thembe Mahlaba, would share their stories and,

"showcase how education can transform girls' lives and create a ripple effect for communities."

Happy #InternationalWomensDay! Today, I hope you’ll join me in celebrating women all over the world—and in renewing our commitment to empowering the next generation. We started the @GirlsOpportunityAlliance to support adolescent girls who face barriers to education so they can pursue their passions, fulfill their boundless potential, and make their voices heard. That's why I'm thrilled that @LizaKoshy, @MostlySane, and @_Thembemathe visited Girls Opportunity Alliance programs around the world to see this important work in action. They’re sharing these stories, which showcase how education can transform girls’ lives and create a ripple effect for communities, in an upcoming special streaming on @YouTube Originals on March 17th. Click on the link in my bio to tune in and to empower girls around the world through education.

The first lady is said to feature on the series, which is set to kick off on the 17th of this month. Also, joining Obama in the new series are Julia Roberts, Lana Condor, and Jenna Bush Hager, who all visited a non-profit organization in Vietnam focused on achieving gender equality through the result available education. 

However, Michelle is not the only former member of the White House that celebrated the special day for women on social media.

Sunday night in Nashville, I walked off stage for the final time on my #IAmBecoming tour. After 34 stops, from Chicago to Copenhagen and Vancouver to Atlanta, I couldn’t be more humbled—or more hopeful. I started this journey knowing that in order for you all to know who I was, you had to know my whole story—the broken parts, the struggles, and the imperfections. It wasn’t always easy to share those moments, but I know that it’s only because of them that I was able to become something more. So thank you all—all the young people I met along the way, all the folks sitting in the balconies, all the book clubs who generated real discussions—for recognizing that truth in your own lives, and for sharing it not just with me but with the world. If each of us can do more of that, if we can be a little more vulnerable, a little more honest with ourselves and with each other, then maybe we can pay that lesson forward to someone else. Maybe we’ll be able to offer each other a little more grace. And maybe then, we can more fully embrace the ways we are the same. To me, that’s how we can all keep becoming, together.

The former secretary of state, Hilary Clinton, also took to Twitter to bring attention to the validity of women's rights in celebration of International Women's Day. She reminded the public that,

"women's rights are human rights, and no administration, political party, court, legislature, or biased attitudes can change that."

The International Women's Day, which is celebrated yearly on the 8th of March, is widely seen as a day to celebrate the several accomplishments of women and girls all over the world.

It is also seen as a day to reinforce the importance of women's rights and girls' right to education. Notable figures from all parts of life who also celebrated the occasion on social media include Shakira, Ellen DeGeneres, and California Senator, Kamala Harris.
