This cracked me up. Out of the WSJ in a look at Sheryl Sandburg’s book,
In Ms. Sandberg’s ideal world, “half our institutions are run by women and half our homes are run by men.” Until this utopia comes to pass, it might be wise to take another look at “society.” Society is, after all, a fancy word for other people. And what is society actually telling women these days? It is telling them that they ought to go out and earn a string of degrees qualifying them for hard-charging careers that the majority of them eventually discover that they don’t actually want. As a result, many of them quietly cut back their hours and do what they actually want to do and do very well: make homes for their families. Sheryl Sandberg isn’t one of them, and more power to her. But she is likely to find that nagging men and women to change their natures is a more daunting task than anything she does at her day job.
