Lean In – Chapter 10 by Sheryl Sandberg

Consumed => “Lean In – Chapter 10 (Let’s Start Talking About It)” by Sheryl Sandberg.

=> Key takeaway #1 (page 147)…

“One of my favorite letters came from Sabeen Virani, a consultant in Dubai and the only woman in an office of more than three hundred employees. She responded to my story about the executive who could not point me to the women’s bathroom because, as she explained, in her workplace, the women’s bathroom did not even exist. Sabeen described how during her first week on the project, the client took her team out to dinner, but she couldn’t join because the restaurant didn’t allow women. Talk about not sitting at the table—she couldn’t even get into the restaurant! Some of the men were openly hostile to Sabeen. Others just ignored her. But rather than give up and transfer to a friendlier office, she decided that she could demonstrate to everyone that women are competent professionals. In the end, she won her coworkers over and the client converted a bathroom into a woman’s bathroom just for her. She sent me a photo of her standing in front of the door with a printed sign that read simply and powerfully ‘Toilets for women only.'”
