New York, Mar 14: Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg’s book, ‘Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead’, which offers feminist advice for working women, has attracted severe criticism.
An article published in the New York Post, has said those who follow Sandberg’s lead are bound to be disappointed – bitter, broke, unemployed, and perpetually single.
New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd – a woman at the top of her field – savaged Sheryl in a remarkably sexist piece, “Pompom Girl for Feminism,” a phrase Dowd extracted from Sheryl herself.
Dowd said Sandberg has a grandiose plan to become the PowerPoint Pied Piper in Prada ankle boots reigniting the women’s revolution.
The author said Sandberg is a traitor to other women she claims she wants to help, adding that it is because she is not honest about what it takes to rise to the top. Sandberg preaches a mantra that seems destined to get women fired, not promoted. She says that women who fail are not assertive, demanding or needy enough, the article said.
The article further said that manipulation is Sandberg’s greatest weapon. (ANI)
