Obama was the magazine’s first-ever guest editor, and this marks the first time a First Lady has guest edited an entire magazine. Imagine walking into work to find out Obama was editing. No pressure!

The issue is focused on the theme “More Impact.” Information boxes scattered throughout the magazine offer readers tips on how to become more involved with the issue at hand.

The issue also highlights Obama’s duties as First Lady and gives some background on the women who have inspired her. In the essay “What Women Owe One Another,” Obama writes about the importance of women supporting each other.
