Should We Lean In to Combat Sexism?

Sheryl Sandberg’s new book, Lean In, has generated a ton of dialog about women and work – not all of it positive, and not all the criticism from men. Actually, the only criticism I’ve read or heard has been from women, and it seems to literally illustrate her point that sexism is very cultural and that women ourselves contribute to it and can become a huge force for change when we shift our own attitudes towards ourselves.

I’m still reading the book but I have to say, I am very impressed. I like her approach and her way of talking about how women can understand our own complicity in perpetuating the sexism against us as the first step to changing it.

I know this is controversial, but I think Sandberg is taking a very InPower approach to the subject. I also have to say I don’t really understand the arguments against her. Do you?

Here are two great clips of her interview last week with John Stewart that summarize a lot of her argument.

What do you think? Is she moving our cause forward or backward?
