Do we want half the world's people to be silent, apologetic, and deferent? Do we want the cries for war to only sound with a masculine voice, a blue power-tie, and an American flag lapel pin?
What men do, what I do is unhealthy. We guess when we should research. Invade instead of investigate. Accuse rather than accept. The irony is, however, that by doing I do. By racing headlong, I learn.
What women do, what they do is unhealthy. They are careful instead of courageous. They seek precision in lieu of production. Acquiescence instead of accusation. Lean out when they should lean in.
If all of this sounds too heavy, then don't read the book Lean In by Sheryl Stanburg.
