Michelle Obama, Charlize Theron, Julia Gillard Speak On Glamour's Girls Education Panel
More than 1,000 girls gathered at the historic Apollo Theater in New York City Tuesday to attend Glamour's "The Power of an Educated Girl" panel — presented by Maybelline New York and The Harnisch Foundation — which will feature special guests including First Lady Michelle Obama, former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, Plan International girl advocate Nurfahada, actress and activists Charlize Theron and Sophia Bush.

One Tree Hill and Chicago P.D. star Sophia Bush will be Glamour's on-site social media correspondent during the panel. Follow her on Twitter @SophiaBush and on Instagram @SophiaBush — and make sure to join in the conversation on @GlamourMag's Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #GlamourForEdu.

AOL is the exclusive livestream partner for Glamour's "The Power of an Educated Girl" panel — you can watch the event from the comfort of your own screen beginning at 11 A.M. EST over on AOL's dedicated live-stream site.
• Around the world
Google for Education will bring the panel discussion to students across the globe as part of the World's Largest Lesson. Girls from countries including Kenya, Ghana, and the Philippines will be posing questions to the panelists and, after the event, the event video will be shared with schools, incorporated into future lesson plans.
Glamour's "The Power of an Educated Girl" panel will raise awareness for girls' education around the world. Our The Girl Project is dedicated to giving at-risk girls the tools they need every day — including school supplies, safe transportation, tuition, after-school programs, and more. The White House's Let Girls Learn initiative seeks to help more than 62 million girls who are not in school around the world obtain access to education and supports "community-led solutions to reduce barriers that prevent adolescent girls from completing their education."
