This week we joined First Lady Michelle Obama on the campaign trail in Virginia, where she spoke to a crowd of grassroots volunteers. She also took an hour to sit down with us and a few other women journalists to have a conversation about what is at stake for women in this election, how she instills everyday values in her daughters as they grow up in the White House, and the ups and downs of being first lady — she just wishes she could walk into a CVS and buy some soap! The first lady was very candid, warm, and reliably relatable. Read on for some of her best pieces of advice, insight, and humor.
