Michelle Obama is calling on young women in the U.S. to take their education a little more seriously.

Kids in the United States are often depicted viewing school as an unbearable daily chore, but education is not a basic right everywhere in the world.

In her open letter to Seventeen magazine, the first lady asked readers to consider how hard it is for some women to even access an elementary-school level education. Whether for financial reasons, gender inequality or even religious beliefs, girls all over the globe are actively kept out of class.
