I am leaning in by paying attention to where the seeds of this movement began -- with Sandberg and her grandmother, but also with New York City. Famed for its culture of ambition, this city has historically been one of the few places where a female immigrant family could make it in business.

Although both Susan and Sheryl acknowledge that a woman's future and happiness is significantly impacted by the man she marries, Susan's letter correlates a happy marriage to intellect. Sheryl acknowledges the difficulties of marriage, and the importance of being true partners.

Nobody ever expected me to do anything other than pursue a career. The flipside is that nobody ever expected me to do anything other than pursue a career. What of men who want to go a less traditional route -- maybe take on the full-time parent role to support a high-achieving spouse?

I have a suggestion for Sandberg and all the Lean In teams out there. Think broadly about populating your circles -- especially regarding age. Fill the seats around the table with fresh perspectives and with viewpoints from women who have been standing up for decades.

Moms Change the World

Moms today are at a new crossroad, and Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In has initiated a fresh conversation about women and work. It's seems to me, however, that what's still missing from the conversation is an appreciation for the unique perspective and life skills of mothers.

Midway in my ascent to upper management, a male colleague called me "the lady without a life." It was supposed to be a compliment of sorts -- I was at work from 7:30 a.m. till close and brought work home on nights and weekends. It was an unconscious tradeoff -- until my husband died.

Enough About 'Leaning In'

It feels like the real point has been hovering a good thousand feet above the conversation. I believed the goal of the women's movement was to achieve true self-determination -- a society in which a woman can be whatever she wants to be.

A couple of weeks ago, a friend emailed me about Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In. "Anyone planning on reading this?" she asked my group of girlfriends, all young professionals between the ages of 28 and 30. "Book club?"

You Just Might Face-Plant if You Try to Live Up to Other's Expectations

I take absolutely no issue with the notion of encouraging girls and young women to be ambitious. What many of us are left wanting, though, are the messages for experienced women professionals beginning to see life differently. Ideas like changing your mind is OK. Not reaching the top is OK.

The Assumptions That Bind

Why do women claw their way out of stereotypical expectations and roles, only to have the accepted standard re-set automatically to gender bias? Why is it always about women entering a man's world, and so rarely about men entering a woman's?

The unconscious decision to lean in was the best decision I ever made. It has not produced a husband and children, but it has produced a career that will facilitate a great family life -- if and when that opportunity and its accompanying decisions come along.

The whole media storm over Sheryl Sandberg's book makes me wonder, why are we so set on judging each other? I know one thing from my personal experience, if you are a mom, you're working hard. None of us are better than the other.

Truly Leaning In

Sandberg has missed a huge opportunity by shifting blame on women and demanding they step up and play like the big boys. Here's a thought: instead of trying the same old strategies of acting like men, how about we try something radically different and start acting like women?
