First Lady Shares Video Message for International Women’s Day

Communicates support especially for women in Ukraine and Russia.

First Lady Jill Biden marked International Women’s Day on Tuesday with a video message to women around the world, making special note of those in the midst of Putin’s attack on Ukraine. She thanked the “women warriors” working to create a better future, and encouraged all women to keep fighting against injustice and oppression.

“Women have never been silent, but women have been silenced. That’s because our voices are powerful,” said the first lady. “To our sisters from Ukraine who are fighting to keep their country free and their families alive: We stand with you in solidarity… To our sisters in Russia who are protesting and speaking out against the invasion at great personal risk: We see your courage.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the first lady as she advocates for women and girls around the world.
  • For diplomats and officials seeking to end the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
  • For God to be with the people of Ukraine as they endure the violence.
