Leave it to First Lady Michelle Obama to rally the world's most interesting and successful ladies for The White House's United State of Women summit.  

On June 14 in Washington, D.C., female heavy hitters like Oprah Winfrey, Tina Fey, Christy Turlington and Kerry Washington will take part in the convention in support of women and girls domestically and internationally. To amp up excitement for this monumental event—which will cover topics like equal pay, women's health, education, preventing violence against women, entrepreneurship, and female leadership—the summit released a promo clip on its Instagram, along with a full-length on its website.
