Women Are Smarter Than Men

During the U.S.-Africa Leaders Spousal Summit, First Lady Michelle Obama and former First Lady Laura Bush discussed women's rights issues and ensuring that girls around the world receive good educations. When asked why it's important for women like her to speak out, Obama said, "We can’t waste the spotlight. Change is needed. Life is short. Women are smarter than men," Obama said to laughter. "And the men can't complain because you're outnumbered today."
