But here's what I think: Sandberg is a true advocate for the women she is speaking for (and to) — and those women deserve a manifesto of their own. She cites Nobel Peace Prize winner Leymah Gbowee (of Liberia, who spoke in Westbrook in March) in making her argument: "Conditions for all women will improve when there are more women in leadership roles giving strong and powerful voice to their needs and concerns."
"We have a long way to go before flextime is accepted in most workplaces," she admits, a sentiment that could be applied to many concepts in Sandberg's book (as well as to topics she doesn't address, such as raising the minimum wage). But she is not deterred. "It will only happen if we keep raising the issue."
