Earlier today, Michelle Obama spoke to approximately 800 women at a special Women for Obama luncheon in Chicago

Michelle said…

[Barack] carries our stories – and the stories of women he’s met all across America – with him every day.

And that’s why as President, Barack will change Washington so that instead of just talking about family values; we actually have policies that value families. That’s why today, we’re unveiling what I call the Blueprint – our plan to support working women and families. There’s not enough time today to go through it all, but I encourage you all to read through it and share it with others.

It lays out my husband’s policies that make it easier for working parents to support, care for, and raise their families; policies that encourage healthy families; policies that no longer force working women to choose between their kids and their careers

Read Michelle\’s full remarks, as prepared for delivery…
