Lean in Book Description:

Ask most women whether they have the right to equality at work and the answer will be a resounding yes, but ask the same women whether they'd feel confident asking for a raise, a promotion, or equal pay, and some reticence creeps in. The statistics, although an improvement on previous decades, are certainly not in women's favour - of 197 heads of state, only twenty-two are women. Women hold just 20 percent of seats in parliaments globally, and in the world of big business, a meagre eighteen of the Fortune 500 CEOs are women. In Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook COO and one of Fortune magazine's Most Powerful Women in Business - looks at what women can do to help themselves, and make the small changes in their life that can effect change on a more universal scale. She draws on her own experiences working in some of the world's most successful businesses, as well as academic research, to find practical answers to the problems facing women in the workplace. Learning to 'lean in' is about tackling the anxieties and preconceptions that stop women reaching the top - taking a place at the table, and making yourself a part of the debate.

EXCERPT FROM CHAPTER 2 - SIT AT THE TABLE -Our invited guests, mostly men, grabbed plates and food and sat down at the large conference table. Secretary Geithner's team, all women, took their food last and sat in chairs off to the side of the room. -I motioned for the women to come sit at the table, waving them over so they would feel welcomed. The four women had every right to be at this meeting, but because of their seating choice, they seemed like spectators rather than participants. -A moment when I realized that in addition to facing institutional obstacles, women face a battle from within. -When a man fails, he points to factors like didn't study enough or not interested in the subject matter. EXCERPT FROM CHAPTER 5 - ARE YOU MY MENTOR? -Chasing or forcing the [mentor] connection rarely works, and yet I see women attempt this all the time. -The question is a total mood killer, the equivalent of turning to a pensive date and asking, What are you thinking? -I mentor when I see something and say, I want to see that grow. -For the past decade, talk of mentorship and sponsorship has been topic number one at any womens career seminar. -I realized that searching for a mentor has become the professional equivalent of waiting for Prince Charming. -The acknowledgments in this book include a long list of people who have been generous enough to guide and advise me. In turn, I have tried to mentor others, including friends of friends, and as I get older, children of friends.

If You Lean In Will Men Just Look Down Your Blouse Book Description:

Gina Barreca is fed up with women who lean in, but don't open their mouths. In her latest collection of essays, she turns her attention to subjects like bondage which she notes now seems to come in fifty shades of grey and has been renamed Spanx. She muses on those lessons learned in Kindergarten that every woman must unlearn like not having to hold the hand of the person you're waking next to (especially if he's a bad boyfriend) or needing to have milk, cookies and a nap every day at 3:00 PM (which tends to sap one's energy not to mention what it does to one's waistline). She sounds off about all those things a woman hates to hear from a man like "Calm down" or "Next time, try buying shoes that fit". "'If You Lean In, Will Men Just Look Down Your Blouse?'" is about getting loud, getting love, getting ahead and getting the first draw (or the last shot). Here are tips, lessons and bold confessions about bad boyfriends at any age, about friends we love and ones we can't stand anymore, about waist size and wasted time, about panic, placebos, placentas and certain kinds of not-so adorable paternalism attached to certain kinds of politicians. The world is kept lively by loud women talking and "'If You Lean In, Will Men Just Look Down Your Blouse?'" cheers and challenges those voices to come together and speak up. You think she's kidding? Oh, boy, do you have another thing coming.
