Lean In

I just finished a really great Book, a Book that I feel every Woman should read! It's Lean In by: Sheryl Sandberg the COO of Facebook. It's so good! It's about how Women can, and should, Lean In in their careers, and in their lives. And how we as Women should be helping & supporting other Women, not fighting against them. The Mommy Wars have to stop!

 "A truly equal world would be one where women ran half our companies and countries,
and men ran half our homes."

"Not all women want careers. Not all women want children. Not all women want both.
We each have to chart our own unique course 
and define which goals fit our lives, values and drams."

"As more women lean in to their careers more men need to lean in to their families."
"Research supports that equality between partners leads to happier relationships.
When husbands do more housework, wives are less depressed, 
marital conflicts decrease, and satisfaction rises.
When women work outside the home and share breadwinning duties,
couples are more likely to stay together.
In fact, the risk of divorce reduces to about half when a wife earns half the income
and a husband does half the housework."

"The more women help one another, 
the more we help ourselves."

Feminism wasn't supposed to make us feel guilty, 
or prod us into constant competitions over who is raising children better, 
organizing more cooperative marriages, or getting less sleep. 
It was supposed to make us free-to give us not only choices 
but the ability to make these choices 
without constantly feeling that we'd somehow gotten it wrong."

"We can do this-for ourselves, for one another, for our daughters, and for our sons.
