Michelle Obama Gives Her Honest Opinion on 'Leaning In': 'That Sh*t Doesn't Work'

But that's exactly what Michelle Obama did during a public event in NY on the weekend.

Obama said her visit to the London school in 2009 inspired her to use her time in the White House to campaign for education for all girls as well as work to combat childhood obesity. "It doesn't go away, that feeling that you shouldn't take me that seriously".

She continued, "It's not always enough to lean in because that shit doesn't work all the time".

Some Obama fans were so overcome by hearing her utter the expletive that they reacted in the extreme, saying their lives have "been forever changed". Obama was articulating her disagreement with the host, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, about the concept of women "leaning in".

The former first lady discussed her memoir Becoming with author Chinamanda Ngozi Adichie and admitted that she was extremely nervous to meet England's reigning monarch.

"The way she made us feel when she first came in 2015 for the United Kingdom launch of Let Girls Learn, we felt those same sparks again".

Obama confessed to facing numerous hurdles and confronting teachers who "underestimated me at every step". "Never underestimate the power of what we wear to communicate another layer of who we are and what we want to say".

"I'm back now", Obama said, smiling and looking a bit sheepish. "It was just the release of eight years of feeling like we had to do everything perfectly, that there wasn't a margin of error, that we couldn't make mistakes, that we couldn't slip, that our tone had to be ideal".

Connie Schultz wrote in the 2013 Post review that Sandberg's book is "full of good intentions", but added that the advice "sounds like a prescription for how to lean in until you collapse from exhaustion".

On her father's death: "While his death was sudden, it was always lurking for us because he was the kind of man who wouldn't get help and was proud and he didn't believe in doctors, and he didn't believe in self pity". I'm still that person to this day and I think it's because of my father's disability.
