Just when you thought Taylor Swift‘s “Bad Blood” video was the definition of #squadgoals, Michelle Obama has the last word with the round up of women featured in her “United State of Women” video.

The video, released on it’s namesake YouTube channel this morning, shows the all-star “cast” who have joined the movement lead by FLOTUS herself.

"There’s a lot that’s been done by and for women and girls, but there’s still plenty to do," the statement on UnitedStateOfWomen.org about the upcoming summit on gender equality hosted by the White House.

"This Summit will rally all of us together to celebrate what we’ve achieved, and how we’re going to take action moving forward. Covering key gender equality issues, we’ll make a powerful difference in our collective future."

The goosebumps-inducing clip begins with none other than acting legend Meryl Streep, funny gal, Tina Fey, and talk show Queen, Oprah Winfrey individually stating, "We are the United State of Women."

It then delves into the issues these women are hoping to tackle and bring to light at the summit, hosted on June 14th and 15th.

"When we work, we get paid, the same as everyone else doing the same job. We will be the boss of a company, our company, of the whole empire. Sounds good, right?" the group, including Orange is the New Black star Laverne Cox and designer Tory Burch, continue.

"We are in charge of our own bodies. Every beautiful part, every powerful part. It's our choice when to say yes, and when to say no. Because duh. Literally duh."

The video ends with the campaign's slogan, "Today, we'll change tomorrow." Pretty darn powerful if you ask us.

"On June 14th, the White House Council on Women and Girls, together with the Department of State, the Department of Labor, the Aspen Institute and Civic Nation, is convening the first United State of Women Summit, a large-scale effort to rally together advocates of gender equality to highlight what we’ve achieved, identify the challenges that remain, and chart the course for addressing them," Obama wrote on the summit's website yesterday.

Obama said over 5,000 people were attending the summit in Washington D.C., and with Hillary Clinton on the cusp of grasping the US Presidential Democratic nomination, there really has never been a better time to be a woman.
