When our Forever First Lady Michelle Obama said, “When they go low, we go high,” she truly meant that as she continues to elevate to new heights. Earlier this week, it was announced that she will be inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame.
According to CBS News, the official induction ceremony will take place in October, and she will be inducted alongside several other inductees that include Octavia Butler, Judy Chicago, Katherine Johnson, Joy Harjo, Rebecca Halstead, Emily Howland, Indra Nooyi, and Mia Hamm.
The National Women’s Hall of Fame said in a press release, “During her eight years as First Lady, Michelle Obama she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, transforming the White House into the ‘People’s House. Since leaving the White House, she has continued to have a profound public impact.”
The NWHF is excited to announce our 2021 Inductees!

The press release continued to state, “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.”
With so much already accomplished, our Forever FLOTUS still has so much more in store.
During a recent interview with People, she discussed some of her upcoming projects, like her new Netflix series, “Waffles + Mochi,” which is being described as a “technicolor dream of happy puppets discovering the joys of healthy eating under the tutelage of ‘Mrs. O,’ who plays the neighborhood grocer.”
She also touched on working towards her retirement and said, “I’ve been telling my daughters I’m moving toward retirement right now, [selectively] picking projects and chasing summer. Barack and I never want to experience winter again. We’re building the foundation for somebody else to continue the work so we can retire and be with each other — and Barack can golf too much, and I can tease him about golfing too much because he’s got nothing else to do.”
