I like both of these women-powerful, strong, confident, witty and they have the knack to connect with the audience. The interview was smooth and a good watch but one thing really stood out for me and that’s what I would like to point out.
Gloria Steinem once said, “Women understand. We may share experiences, make jokes, paint pictures and describe humiliations that mean nothing to men, but women understand. The odd thing about these deep and personal connections of women is that they often ignore barriers of age, economics, worldly experiences, race, culture-all the barriers that, in male or mixed society, had seemed so difficult to cross.” And these words ring true on watching this talk!
The First Lady talks about her “kitchen table friends”, her inner circle, her soul sisters, her partners in crime. This comprises of women from all walks of life, may it be work, politics or just random people she met on her journey. Women have several roles- a mother, a wife and a career and all it takes is a good friend, to help a woman deal with her fifty shades of life. The airtel ad- ‘har ek dost zaroori hota hai’, holds true in life.
Michelle Obama, wonderfully brings this point across. One person cannot fulfill us, it’s too much to lay all your eggs in one basket, it’s way too much burden. We must all identify our inner circle of friends and stay connected through the highs and lows.
The duo covered everything from menopause to social issues to romance. Their conversation can be described as, “candid, at times poignant, at times comedic but always real…about the moment we are living.”
Watch it on Netflix.
