Much has been made lately of Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg’s book and organization, Lean In.  Are their recommendations right for every woman in the working world?  How should young adult females take this information and apply it to their own situations and future aspirations?  Why are women being told to lean in and not stand up?  In the conversation, many may have missed a very important point made on the organization’s website.
