The former First Lady highlighted the inequalities between working mothers and fathers while at a Let Girls Learn event in Madrid. Michelle explained men as seen as “heroic” for changing a nappy while it’s considered the norm for a mother. She added the equalities are as bad for men as they are for women because “men want to be good fathers an spend more time with their kids”.

At the event, Michelle said: “When a father gets home from a long day of work and changes a diaper, he’s practically considered a hero.

“But when a woman changes a diaper, no one really notices because that’s what’s expected of her as a mother, even if she works outside of the home.

“When a father puts in long hours at work, he’s praised for being dedicated and ambitious.

“But when a mother stays late at the office, she’s sometimes accused of being selfish, neglecting her kids."
