She wrote her book "Lean In" about women's success in the workplace, and now Sheryl Sandberg is offering more key tips in Glamour magazine's March 2014 issue.
During her interview with the publication, the COO of Facebook shared ways a woman can have a work and home life along with how a woman can tell if she's in an equal relationship with her significant other.
Highlights from Miss Sandberg's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to visit Glamour!
On her significant moments since "Lean In" came out:
"We have to celebrated every positive moment... But I want to say, 'Thank you, but not enough. We want more. We want real equality.' Progress is still very slow. The numbers [or women leaders] are still really, really low. We just had two female heads of state elected. That brings the total to about 18."
On her experience with having both career and family:
"I want [younger women] to know it's possible. It's not easy, though it's certainly easier for me than a lot of people. I guess I also want them to know it's fulfilling: I want them to have 'and' language rather than 'or' language: Men feel like they can be a professional and a father. For women it's 'or.' That's offensive to me because 70 percent of mothers in this country work full-time. They have to! So this concept that it's not possible is crazy... [Even in Hollywood] I can't name a show or movie where the female lead character works and has kids and isn't frazzled. I can't think of any who work and are happy."
On her views on equality in relationships:
"There's a lot that needs to be fixed in dating for men and women in our country - there's a lot of pressure on women to do things they may not want to do. And if you start out unequal, you are not going to end up with equality. I'm not suggesting you discuss diaper duty on the first date. But if it's serious, and you want a career, talk about it."
On her uncomfortable feelings about "most powerful" label:
"For all the reasons I wrote about in the book! I'm not writing about things other women do. I'm writing for other women to have more self-confidence because I need it myself! And if more women were in power, I would... feel more comfortable."
