A year ago, few folks were talking about Sheryl Sandberg. Her thoughts on feminism were of little  interest. More significantly, there was next-to-no public discussion of feminist thinking and practice.  Rarely, if ever, was there any feminist book mentioned as a bestseller and certainly not included on  the  New York Times  Best Seller list. Those of us who have devoted lifetimes to teaching and writing  theory, explaining to the world the ins and outs of feminist thinking and practice, have experienced  that the primary audience for our work is an academic sub-culture. In recent years, discussions of  feminism have not evoked animated passion in audiences. We were far more likely to hear that we  are living in a post-feminist society than to hear voices clamoring to learn more about feminism. This  seems to have changed with Sandberg’s book  Lean In, holding steady on the  Times  bestseller list for more than sixteen weeks. No one was more surprised than long-time advocates of feminist thinking and practice to learn via  mass media that a new high priestess of feminist movement was on the rise. Suddenly, as if by  magic, mass media brought into public consciousness conversations about feminism, reframing the  scope and politics through an amazing feat of advertising. At the center of this drama was a young,  high-level corporate executive, Sheryl Sandberg, who was dubbed by Oprah Winfrey and other  popular culture pundits as “the new voice of revolutionary feminism.”  Forbes Magazine  proclaimed  Sandberg to be one of the most influential women in the world, if not the most.  Time  Magazine  ranked her one of a hundred of the most powerful and influential world leaders. All over  mass media, her book  Lean In  has been lauded as a necessary new feminist manifesto. Yet Sandberg confesses to readers that she has not been a strong advocate of feminist movement;  that like many women of her generation, she hesitated when it came to aligning herself with feminist  concerns. She explains: I headed into college believing that the feminists of the sixties and seventies had done the hard work of achieving equality for my generations. And yet, if anyone had called me a feminist I would have quickly corrected that notion…. On one hand, I started a group to encourage more women to major in economics and government. On the other hand, I would have denied being in any way, shape, or form a feminist. None of my college friends thought of themselves as feminists either. It saddens me to admit that we did not see the backlash against women around us…. In our defense, my friends and I truly, if naively, believed that the world did not need feminists anymore. Although Sandberg revised her perspective on feminism, she did not turn towards primary sources  (the work of feminist theorists) to broaden her understanding. In her book, she offers a simplistic  description of the feminist movement based on women gaining equal rights with men. This  construction of simple categories (women and men) was long ago challenged by visionary feminist  thinkers, particularly individual black women/women of color. These thinkers insisted that everyone  acknowledge and understand the myriad ways race, class, sexuality, and many other aspects of  identity and difference made explicit that there was never and is no simple homogenous gendered  identity that we could call “women” struggling to be equal with men. In fact, the reality was and is that

I am proud of my bona Fdes on supporting the advancement of women. It angers me to think how slow executive suites and boardrooms are to welcome more qualiFed females. Stubborn gender wage gaps for comparable work are unacceptable and must be closed. However, with all of the attention and focus on supporting equal opportunities for women, we have taken our eyes o± an alarming trend. Young men in the US are in trouble by any measure of educational attainment. It’s a big deal and, for reasons of political correctness, we aren’t talking enough about this growing national problem. I refuse to believe the support of young American’s progress is a zero-sum game — that somehow if we call attention to the problem and take a di±erent approach to improve the experience and outcomes of boys it would come at the expense of celebrating and enabling continued advancement of girls. We can and must recognize the unique challenges of young men and we had better start doing something about it now. Have you taken a stroll on a college campus recently? Where have the men gone? In the latest census , males comprise 51% of the total US population between the ages of 18-24. Yet, just over 40% of today’s college students are men. In fact, in each year since 1982, more American women than men have received bachelor’s degrees Over the last decade two million more women graduated from college than men. And the gap continues to grow. Michael Thompson, author of Raising Cain , a great book on the plight of young males, illustrates the path we are going down with a startling extrapolation. He notes that if today’s trends continue unaltered, the last young man in the US to get a college degree will do so in 2068. Scary stu±. The gender achievement gap is astounding. The average 11th grade boy writes at the level of the average 8th grade girl. Men are signiFcantly underperforming women. According to a recent NBC news report , women dominate high school honor rolls and now make up more than 70% of class valedictorians. Again, I am happy to see women succeeding. But can we really a±ord for our country’s young men to fall so far behind? A growing education attainment gap has profound consequences for the economy. It mattered far less during the industrial era when young men in this country could Fnd good high-wage jobs in the manufacturing sector without a college degree or post-secondary credential. In a post-industrial economy, the social contract has changed. The deal used to be that college was only for a narrow segment of our population. Everyone else willing to work hard could make enough money to raise a family and achieve the American dream of owning

What Would You Do If You Weren't Afraid? My grandmother Rosalind Einhorn was born exactly fifty-two years before I was, on August 28, 1917. Like many poor Jewish families in the boroughs of New York City, hers lived in a small, crowded apartment close to their relatives. Her parents, aunts, and uncles addressed her male cousins by their given names, but she and her sister were referred to only as "Girlie." During the Depression, my grandmother was pulled out of Morris High School to help support the household by sewing fabric flowers onto undergarments that her mother could resell for a tiny profit. No one in the community would have considered taking a boy out of school. A boy's education was the family's hope to move up the financial and social ladder. Education for girls, however, was less important both financially, since they were unlikely to contribute to the family's income, and culturally, since boys were expected to study the Torah while girls were expected to run a "proper home." Luckily for my grandmother, a local teacher insisted that her parents put her back into school. She went on not only to finish high school but to graduate from U.C. Berkeley. After college, "Girlie" worked selling pocketbooks and accessories at David's Fifth Avenue. When she left her job to marry my grandfather, family legend has it that David's had to hire four people to

Lately, the raging debate about issues of "work-life  balance" has focused on whether or not women can "have it all." Entirely lost in this debate is the growing strain of  work-life balance on men, who today are feeling the  competing demands of work and home as much or more  than women. And the truth is as shocking as it is obvious:  No one can have it all The baby has a heartbeat. The ultrasound shows ten fuzzy Fngers and ten fuzzy toes and a tiny crescent-moon mouth that will soon let out the Frst of many wails. We have chosen not to Fnd out the gender, and when the question comes, as it does every day, we say we have no preference. Ten Fngers, ten toes. A wail in the delivery room would be nice. But in private, just us, we talk. About the pros and cons of boys versus girls, and about whether it would be better, more advantageous, to be born a boy or a girl right now. It's a toss-up, or maybe just a draw — impossible to say that a boy or a girl born in America in 2013 has any conspicuous advantages because of his or her gender. Consider the facts: Nearly 60 percent of the bachelor's degrees in this country today go to women. Same number for graduate degrees. There are about as many women in the workforce as men, and according to Hanna Rosin's 2012 book, The End of Men, of the Ffteen professions projected to grow the fastest over the coming years, twelve are currently dominated by women. Per a 2010 study by James Chung of Reach Advisors, unmarried childless women under thirty and with full-time jobs earn 8 percent more than their male peers in 147 out of 150 of the largest U. S. cities. The accomplishments that underlie those numbers are real and world-historic, and through the grueling work of generations of women, men and women are as equal as they have ever been. Adding to that the greater male predisposition to ADHD, alcoholism, and drug abuse, women have nothing but momentum coming out of young adulthood — the big mo! — and then. .. Well, what exactly? Why don't women hold more than 15 percent of Fortune 500 executive-o±cer positions in America? Why are they stalled below 20 percent of Congress? Why does the average woman earn only seventy-seven pennies for every dollar made by the average man? Childbirth plays a role, knocking
