Are Michelle Obama, Amal Clooney and Melinda French Gates the three most influential feminist figures in the world? After they joined together to launch the Get Her There movement, to advance the empowerment of girls worldwide, many saw the trio as dazzling icons for female achievement.

They are all prominent philanthropists and their campaign to support girls globally is an excellent endeavour – advancing equality and halting child marriage. Mrs Obama, Mrs Clooney and Ms French Gates (as they have called themselves) are admirable global personalities who are great role models for aspiring girls and young women growing up today.
