In celebration of the International Day of the Girl, this Michelle Obama playlist -- a collection of tracks handpicked by FLOTUS herself -- supports the 62 Million Girls campaign.

The Michelle Obama playlist includes such inspirational female anthems as Beyonce's 'Run the World,' TLC's 'No Scrubs' and Aretha Franklin's 'Respect.' The First Lady's Day of the Girl playlist draws attention to the international celebration of young women, as well as the campaign she's been working on throughout her last year in office, 62 Million Girls.

The awareness-raising movement points to the fact that 62 million girls throughout the world don't yet have access to education. It asks people from around the world who attended school to send in photographs of themselves with a caption describing what they took from their educational experience, creating an international, generation-spanning yearbook in celebration of every person's right to education.
