Great post from The Black Snob on Sheryl Sandberg here
While Sandberg makes some valid points about women downplaying their
worth or being afraid to negotiate for raises (this goes back to how
often women, especially white women, are socialized to "be happy just to
be here" then "apologize for existing"), her story is lacking in how
myopic her view is. She's wealthy, accomplished, has an equally
successful and supportive husband, nannies and had a career shepherded
by a powerful man before blossoming as an executive and becoming the
leader she is today.
Basically, she's the best case scenario.
This is why we can't have nice things
And for a geeky note, I started doing new stories for my job and the first podcast is up!
