I am going through my old highlights on my Kindle from time to time. Some of them make perfect sense even much later, the majority of them seems to be that I’ve just held down my finger at the wrong point.
The quote below from Lean in, by Sheryl Sandberg was one of the ones that I think make a lot of sense, even out of context.
“Not all women want careers. Not all women want children. Not all women want both. I would never advocate that we should all have the same objectives.”
The important bit becomes to ensure to not look down on women who pick differently from what we would have picked for ourselves.
Women are not one entity that thinks and feel the same way.
We have different goals and aspirations.
And that is okay.
