There was an article on the front page of USA Today about Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg. She is reputed to be one of the most powerful women in business and a lead executive at Facebook.
The book review by Julia M. Klein states that Ms. Sandberg’s book talked about what I have been saying for years: that women actively hold themselves back. They listen to negative internal messages, don’t advocate for themselves strongly in pay … they lack confidence … they inadvertently lower their career expectations. She even talks about how women do themselves in by doing more than their share of housework and childcare.
What to do? Stop giving it away.
