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

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

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.
