Michelle Obama surprised more people aren't open about marriage therapy

Michelle Obama said, "My advice to young women is that you have to start by trying to get those demons out of your head". "That's a lie. And it's not always enough to lean in, because that s**t doesn't work all the time".

Anthony, 25, is now a senior analyst at a business intelligence company and told the Press Association it was "amazing" to meet the former First Lady again.

The Queen reminds Barack Obama of his grandmother, his wife said last night as she provided insights into the bond between the British royals and the former presidential couple. According to the Evening Standard, the pair used the time to discuss their many shared causes such as empowering women and boosting girls' education, and we bet these two incredible ladies got on like a house on fire.

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

"Malia and I were talking recently about all the little things we'd stress over in junior high and high school - whether we're wearing the right clothes, a snarky comment somebody made about us, the boys we crushed on", she says.

Five years since Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead was published, the career advice that women need to "lean in" to their ambitions is being questioned more than ever. Her message also ignored a lot of issues like race and class. "And so then it's time to go to marriage counseling", she added, to delighted laughter from the audience.

Her marriage and her family, from our outside perspective, are beyond enviable.

"Marriage still ain't equal, y'all", Obama told the crowd.

The 54-year-old didn't pull any punches when serving up her opinion on work-life balance and marriage equality for women, saying that the idea that women can have it all is untrue because "that s-t doesn't work all the time". "It is hard. I love my husband, and we have a great marriage, and we've had a great marriage, but marriage is hard work".

She also spoke of the importance of building support systems.

And when she is ready, Obama encouraged the Duchess of Sussex to pursue something she is really passionate about.

"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.
