"I tell woman that whole 'you can have it all.' nope, not at the same time-that's a lie", she said. "It's not always enough to lean in because that s-t doesn't work all the time".

The crowd roared with applause and laughter. Sandberg's LeanIn.org's stated mission "is to empower women to achieve their ambitions".

Obama was articulating her disagreement with the host, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, about the concept of women "leaning in".

A World Bank report this year said more than 130 million girls remain out of school despite the fact that women who have completed secondary education are more likely to work and earn on average almost twice as much as those with no schooling.

She continued: "Overall, we are not seeing a major increase in female leadership in any industry or in any government in the world, and I think that's a shame".

On the importance of education, she added: "Someone can't analyse what Brexit means if they can't think critically about the issues".

She said her father's death left her with an "emptiness" that she still can not get rid of. It's just that in this cultural moment knocking Sandberg's ideas is fairly kosher, even for a diplomat's diplomat like Obama. "But sometimes that stuff doesn't work". "I touched her. After all those protocol lessons, I was human", she said of the incident. "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". People get career counselling, that's ok, but you're trying to meld two lives forever, that is hard and there is no training for it, there is no class.

Obama quickly cut herself off and apologized to the room for getting too comfortable onstage.

On one of the most fun days she had at the White House: "It's impossible to single out one day, because there were so many good ones, but something that always made me feel good was being around children and young people..." All kids can only dream things that are known to them. "They're like, 'What's that?' And I'm like, 'Yep, we're in the real world now, fellas'".

The former First Lady was described as having "taken London by storm" by news anchor Jon Snow as she responded to questions in a Q&A session with author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Standard UK reports.

"Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family's safety at risk". I sat on the stoop and there were dogs barking in the distance and I realized Bo and Sunny had really never heard neighbor dogs.

In Becoming, Mrs Obama, 54, wrote: "I wasn't prepared fully prepared to feel what I did".

Michelle Obama has however cancelled book tour stops in Paris and Berlin to attend the funeral of former U.S. president George HW Bush, who died Friday aged 94.
