Melania Trump emerges to attend Women of Courage ceremony at the State Department First Lady Melania Trump made a rare public appearance today at the State Department at an event honoring 'International Women of Courage.' 'I am deeply humbled to be here today to honor these 12 remarkable and inspirational women, who have given so much for so many, regardless of the unimaginable threat to their own personal safety.' Among the honorees were women from Iraq, Yemen, Syria and Turkey. 'Together, we must declare that the era of allowing the brutality against women and children is over while affirming that the time for empowering women around the world is now,' the first lady said. 'For wherever women are diminished, the entire world is diminished with them. However, wherever women are empowered, towns and villages, schools and economies are empowered, and together we are all made stronger with them,' she continued.
