Lean In — for yourself and for all women

Angelou Women

I agree strongly with the leaning in principle. One very relevant and related thing that doesn’t get a lot of airplay, however, is that not enough women in influential positions support other women who decide they are finally going to take a chance and lean in, or those women who need help to lean in. That’s where I think women can make more of an impact in the world — bringing others along and lending support.

It reminds me of Madeleine Albright’s famous quote: “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.”

The tipping point may be getting women of influence or women who lead without authority from wherever they are to understand that they won’t lose anything by helping other women, and that they have everything to gain for themselves and in contributing to social equity.

My two cents.
