Michelle Obama's Take On 'Lean In'? 'That &#%! Doesn't Work'

Former first lady Michelle Obama is out of the oval office, on her Becoming book tour and letting her hair down.

"I feel vulnerable all the time", she tells Winfrey.

Mrs Obama is now in the United Kingdom promoting her book where an appearance in London's South Bank Centre tonight has been sold out for weeks.

"Truly, for me, if there is anyone out there who sees a different possibility for themselves as a young person - changing a life, saving a life in some circumstances - that really is what I'm most proud of".

The Duchess of Sussex slipped into the audience to listen to the former First Lady's talk and had a private audience with her afterwards - sadly, not over dinner at Amal and George Clooney's, as had previously been reported. She spoke there about visiting Windsor Castle in 2016 together with her husband, who was the U.S. president then.

Obama said that a focus on issues that she's passionate about not only helped others but ultimately had an impact on her own well-being.

"Thankfully I get more (and more regular) sleep these days", she said.

In 2017, Sandberg admitted that the "lean in" method isn't as effective as she thought it would be: "We are stuck at less than six per cent of the Fortune 500 CEO jobs and their equivalent in nearly every country in the world". Although the girls spent their teenage years in the White House, Michelle points out that they still faced numerous same experiences she did growing up. But her words have an element of truth that Sheryl Sandberg's optimistic ideology about "leaning in" to have it all doesn't take into account.

"In terms of women in leadership roles, we are not better off", she said, noting that women occupied less than 6 percent of Fortune 500 CEO jobs and their global equivalents, and the number of countries run by women had decreased.

"I've been at probably every powerful table that you can think of".

Speaking to author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie about her autobiography Becoming at Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall, Mrs Obama also recalled the controversy she caused when she touched the Queen on the back during another visit.

"As much as I wish that could happen in four years, I don't think that's a likely time period", said Sandberg.

However this is believed to be the first time Mrs Obama has met the Duchess of Sussex. "We made sure that kids-ordinary kids, not just the kids of a donor or a Congressman-had access to folks like Justin Timberlake, Janelle Monáe and Smokey Robinson talking about the doubts and struggles they fought through, giving their time to inspire young people".
