Zuckerberg needs some adult supervision. Good for him that Sheryl is there.
Patent - so you're saying that this role model of feminism is a glorified nanny? I thought that was his wife's job - & since she's a former teacher she is probably better suited.
Zuck does not have very good judgment, it is said, and apparently his wife is far more mature about things. Or so a few of his employees have told me.
However, I wish Sheryl Sandberg had been there decades ago to give me such a pep talk. Women were often beaten down by family, employers, even educators then. It is a far better time to be a woman now.
There is nothing new in Sandberg's message. The feminist leaders back in the 70s said the same thing, and many individual successful women wrote lots of books and made lots of public appearances to reiterate the message.
So the words/observations/advice is not new, but I appreciate Sandberg's re-statement -- even if it is a rather bland version.
The only good thing to come out of this is the New York Times Op-Ed yesterday (April 3) on the tax reasons why things aren't so great for middle class women.
I work as a receptionist in Stanford Hospitals. I would love to stay at home with my three kids. Just love it. I would like to take them to soccer, see them grow up, answer their questions, be with them all until they get to high school.
Sheryl thinks we all want to be like her. Most of us just want enough money to have a happy family life. Sheryl thinks we should be like her. Well I dont want to be like her. Facebook is corrupt. It takes the privacy of foolish people and sells it to advertisers. Sheryl was part of the IPO which ripped off more foolish people. Now she has a nanny she is making more money of foolish people thinking she knows about what women are not doing!
