  • Michelle Obama's Memoir

Ex-First Lady Michelle Obama, who is touring the United States in support of her memoir, "Becoming", cussed before the NY public during a conversation on hurdles of marriage.

After applying to Princeton her high school counsellor told her: "I don't think you're Princeton material". "And its not always enough to 'Lean In, ' cause that sh-t doesn't work".

The former USA first lady was asked by Good Housekeeping magazine what tips she could give Meghan.

Obama confessed to facing numerous hurdles and confronting teachers who "underestimated me at every step". What does work, she also noted, was finding people that believe in her even if it doesn't come from the places where you might expect it. Alright, I'm back now. Sometimes that stuff doesn't work.

"Leaning in" is shorthand for encouraging women to be more ambitious in their professional lives, but it's been heavily criticized for ignoring the institutional sexism that so often keeps women from breaking professional glass ceilings.

Kid rocked: Controversial musician out as Nashville Christmas Parade grand marshal
Steve Smith, who owns several Nashville bars that are parade co-organizers, vowed Rock would retain his honorary title. Mayoral spokesman Thomas Mulgrew said Briley was disgusted by Kid Rock's comments about Behar.

Obama's mention of "lean in" was a reference to Facebook's chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg's mantra and 2013 book that called on women to be more assertive in the workplace.

She said: "I had all this protocol buzzing in my head and I was like "don't trip down the stairs and don't touch anybody, whatever you do" and so the Queen says "just get in, sit wherever" and she's telling you one thing and you're remembering protocol and she says "Oh it's all rubbish, just get in".

But many were delighted at the glimpse of a more casual Obama, perhaps freer now than in the White House years. "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".

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

On Monday she said universities needed to do more to encourage pupils from schools like EGA, to be more diverse.

Mexico Rejects Washington’s Requests to Block Migrants From Seeking Asylum in US
Mexico's government has pushed back, arguing that the migrants have a right to ask US officials for asylum. Authorities in Tijuana say they plan to open another shelter for migrants in the Mexican border city.

She said that the idea that women can have it all at the same time is "a lie".

"And so then it's time to go to marriage counselling".

"We are by no means suggesting Sandberg intended to blame women for inequality", researchers wrote.

"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.
