Nice article in The New York Times about Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s COO and about to become the richest self-made woman of the world.
The only part I didn’t like is this:
“I think she’s had a golden path herself, and perhaps does not more readily understand that the real struggles are not having children or ambition,” Ms. Hewlett continued. “Women are, in fact, fierce in their ambition, but they find that they’re actually derailed by other things, like they don’t have a sponsor in their life that helps them go for it.”
It’s terrible when someone tries to diminish someone else’s accomplishments by saying that they were privileged.
