This thought-provoking book has reshaped my perspective on workplace equality. In India, many women still don’t work. Sometimes their partners/parents don’t allow them to. In other cases, they choose a homemaker-type lifestyle simply because it’s more convenient. The general perception among Indian women is that all women in the West work and they have more control over their careers. But Sandberg draws on research, data and her own experience to prove that women don’t have it easy anywhere.
Even in the US, where most women work, they have a hard time juggling work and family, because the responsibility of child care falls on them by default.
Until next week,
