Sheryl Sandberg works for Facebook and is credited with making it as big as it is today. She has two Harvard degrees and a whole lot more on her resume. She has written a book called “Lean In” and people are in an uproar!
What do you think?
Here’s what I think:
I want to know WHY people seem to think that we WOMEN even want to do everything that men do! I don’t! I would never have given up my life of staying home with my four amazing children. There have been many times that I have wished that I could have continued my career in journalism, writing and photography. I have always understood that, what I have always wanted most of all, was to be a great mother and wife. I have given it everything I have and intend to continue to do it. If my life ended today, I would be incredibly happy with my choices!
She says that “In order for women to sit at more tables in the board room, men have to sit at more tables in the kitchen.” I agree with this but it also means that you have to give up that time with your kids. Even Sheryl Sandberg admits that she feels guilty for missing so many things with her children like their school programs and things like that.
So the question is: Can women have it ALL? Can men? I don’t think so.
