  • Michelle Obama visits UK

"It's not always enough to lean in, because that s-t doesn't work all the time", Obama said. "It ain't equal. I tell women that, it's not equal".

Obama recalled the challenges her husband faced before being elected president but did not dwell on life under the current president, Donald Trump, except to say that she is "hopeful". I was gettin' real comfortable up in here.

"I nearly felt myself fall back into my own past". Sometimes that stuff doesn't work.

Sandberg advocated in her 2013 book, "Lean In", that women take charge in the workplace.

And despite living in the country's most famous house, Mrs. Obama has said the girls still dealt with normal teen rites of passage - including the prom.

Receiving a standing ovation as she strode onto the stage, Obama spoke about everything from convincing her parents to let her eat peanut butter for breakfast, to her father talking about the joy of sex, to dealing with his death in 1991.

"It did not really sink in that it was her", 11-year-old Emma said. "And to walk away from that and to look my parents in the eye and say "I'm not feeling this", she laughed, trailing off at the memory.

Michelle Obama, then the US First Lady, during a visit to Elizabeth Garrett Anderson School in Barnsbury in 2009.

As for her time in the White House, she said it is "impossible to single out one day" as the most fun or memorable, but she noted that interacting with children and young people always made her 'feel good'.

She also returned to a London school she had visited as United States first lady encouraging students to "practice sisterhood" as she presented a new memoir of her life.

"Her embarrassment [had] already [begun] to smolder as we rode the elevator downstairs", Mrs. Obama writes. "'What do you think, honey, should I roll up my sleeves?' These days, I'm more in control of my time". "I had to know who I was, what I cared about, how I wanted to direct my life, what kind of mother I wanted to be so I could stake my claim in this relationship".
