"Marriage still ain't equal, y'all", Obama said, according to Vanity Fair.

"It's not always enough to lean in, because that shit doesn't work all the time", Obama said in response to the "lean In' mantra made famous by Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg in her book by the same title".

"And it's not always enough to lean in, because that sh*t doesn't work all the time".

"Our Secret Service doesn't even let me ride around with Malia so up until that point we had never driven in a vehicle driven by anyone else, so it was like "this is what's going to happen, you're going to get out and sit here and this is what is going to happen".

The writer and cultural commentator Touré was there, and tweeted that the audience "freaked out" when Obama used the curse word - and that the former first lady herself said she "forgot where she was for a moment".

"I'll always be grateful for the opportunity that living in the White House afforded us", she said about the little sleep she got, adding, "But it probably won't come as a surprise to anyone that sometimes it was a real challenge to keep up with the pace".

"My mother said I'm raising adults, I'm not raising babies", she recalled.

The first African-American first lady discussed the importance of making elite universities feel attainable to young, working class girls from Black Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME) background.

It was an unusual critique of Mrs Sandberg, who wrote a book entitled Lean In in 2013 that encourages women to get ahead in the workplace by "leaning in" to their ambitions. "Who knows what dreams these kids could have for themselves after that?" "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".

"When a woman starts thinking about having children, Sandberg said, 'she doesn't raise her hand anymore".

"They're charging forwards in sports and maths and science and technology", she told Good Housekeeping. "It's usually men who make it unsafe for us", she said according to Hello Giggles. "I think it's okay - it's good, even - to do that...."
