And while Obama said she may have been raised to believe she and her brother were equals, this past presidential election has made her worry about the current state of women in the country. "If we're not comfortable that a women could be a president then we have to have these conversations with ourselves'".

"She would include you in big grown up conversations", Obama told the crowd at the Shrine auditorium.

"I think she's so right". "Good for you. But there's still the notion, when you say, 'Oh you don't have kids, ' 'Tracee Ellis Ross must not be happy because she's not married with kids'".

Ross went on to ask Obama, "Speaking about 14 year olds and not knowing much, do you think there's a way that we can help everyone dream in a more limitless way that is not gender based?"

"When the most qualified person running was a woman, and look what we did instead, I mean that says something about where we are", Obama said, referencing President TrumpDonald John TrumpCarl Bernstein: Giuliani's goal is to "throw bombs" into the Mueller probe Trump knew about Stormy Daniels payment months before denial: report Cohen took out lines of credit for as much as 4K during campaign: report MORE's victory in the 2016 election.

In her address, Obama stated that young girls are "taught to be ideal", and are still being held to a higher standard than men. You know nothing. Love you!' So, let's just talk about it.

It's not the first time that the former first lady has leveled criticism against female Trump supporters.

"Just being at the table can bring a perspective that can be overlooked".

She added: "Looking for the next person to run. that's been our distraction". "I'm proud of what I hear from young girls, but I think something happens when they get to that stage where you're supposed to be married and have kids". A lot of us have gotten to the table, but we are so grateful to be at the table that we are afraid to shake it up.

Ellis Ross, a 45-year-old unmarried actress without any children, asked Obama her thoughts on what today's children should be dreaming about. "We still didn't get 'Yes, we can" right. "It's not, 'Yes, you can, ' it's 'Yes, we can'".
