Former First Lady Michelle Obama isn’t keeping quiet.

On Tuesday, the political activist headed to the Pennsylvania Conference for Women where she participated in an interview with Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes.

During their session, Obama reflected on her time in the White House, but also took a moment to address what’s currently going on under the Trump administration.

Obama moved on to specifically address the challenges women face today.

She then moved on and provided some uplifting words for women fighting for change. “It’s amazing to watch. I want women to pay attention, because this is what happens when we don’t stand up,” she said. “We give our seats to those who [society says] are supposed to be there, because of the stereotypes of what power and success is supposed to be.”

Can we get a round of applause, please?
