    Valerie Jarrett reportedly writes in her new book that she confronted former President Obama over a "macho atmosphere" in the White House, where she served as senior adviser, adding that female staff members initially felt intimidated during his time in office.

    Axios, which obtained a copy of Finding My Voice: My Journey to the West Wing and the Path Forward, reported Tuesday that Jarrett writes that she told Obama that women "rarely talk" in meetings, adding that "when you aren't there to ask their opinion, they are becoming increasingly mute."

    Jarrett also writes that the former president met for several hours with female White House staffers to listen to concerns and hear suggestions on how to improve the environment at the White House, according to the news outlet.

    "He invited over a dozen of the senior women for dinner at the White House to discuss what was going on," Jarrett reportedly wrote in the book. "He gave us his undivided attention for two and a half hours."

    Jarrett added that Obama was able to reassure female staffers, Axios notes.

    "Having the president himself assure [the women] of their value ... gave us the courage and confidence we needed to make our voices heard," she wrote.

    The former top White House adviser also writes that she has been "going through the five stages of grief, sometimes all five in the same day," since President Trump took office, according to Axios.

    "In the beginning, denial and anger were high on the list; I still haven't embraced acceptance," Jarrett quipped.

    Wasn't it nice to hear that President Obama would sit down with women to discuss their fears and issues and actually listen to them? This is what a president should do. I try to imagine this kind of advice to the current president and I can also see meetings like this NOT HAPPENING!
