In her article, “Lean In: What Would You Do If You Weren’t Afraid?” Sheryl Sandberg discusses the issue of women’s equality and success in the workplace. She states that women are told they won’t become as successful as their male counterparts, and ironically that becomes true. Sandberg also discusses women and their struggles of balancing personal lives and work. Although the article may seem slightly monotonous, the author appears extremely credible and reliable because of her use of references to pop culture, use of personal stories, and exceptional use of facts.
Carol Karlsen 's The Devil in the Shape of a Woman: Witchcraft in Colonial New England provides a sociological and anthropological examination of the witchcraft trends in early New England. By examining the records, Karlsen has created what she suggests was the clichéd 'witch ' based on income, age, marital status, etc. She argues that women who had inherited or stood to inherit fairly large amounts of property or land were at particular risk, as they "stood in the way of the orderly transmission of property from one generation of males to the next." These women, Karlsen suggests, were targeted largely because they refused to accept "their place" in colonial society.
However, the way they interpret and think about the topics contrast greatly. It’s important for both men and women to fully understand each author’s perspective. Significant issues that affect society are presented in each article; therefore, understanding the leadership gap, strategies of maintaining a work-balance lifestyle, and realizing how men are discussed and regarded in women-based articles is
In her 2013 book “Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead,” Sheryl Sandberg argues the stance that people need to take initiative and “Lean In” throughout all aspects of life. Sandberg takes the stance that women deserve equality in the workplace, women in leadership roles, and high political roles. Sandberg acts as a launching pad for Rosa Brooks and Elizabeth Bruenig, who analyze and argue her stance, because Sandberg’s writing gets the conversation started. Brooks and Bruenig take different ideas and points from Sandberg to form their own persuasion of why “Leaning In” may not be the most ideal approach. They also use Sheryl Sandberg’s title in their articles because it acts as their hook and catches the audiences attention to consider their point of view. Brooks and Bruenig need Sandberg in order to analyze and formulate their opinions which is why “Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead” acts as the soundboard for the two conversations that will be discussed.
Many people across the world enjoy drinking, but drinking heavily over longer periods of time may result in serious long-term health problems. Heavy or long-term consumption of alcohol damages the drinker and also ruins relationships and society in terms of violence and crime, accidents, and drunk driving. Alcoholism is the popular term for the two disorders, alcohol abuse and alcohol dependence. Alcohol abuse is when a person drinks to the point where it 's dangerously affecting their life. While alcohol dependence is when a person is physically or mentally addicted to alcohol. It is a serious problem that is continually growing with roughly 2 billion people consuming alcohol per year. My dad being a part of that 2 billion people. However,
This is probably Sandberg’s worst method blatantly because she gives personal evidence more than statistical. One of the statistics she does point out is “More young women (66 percent) than young men (59 percent) rated success in a high paying career or profession, as important to their lives.” (647). The only thing this brings to perspective is that women care about being more successful in their jobs. A statistic of what gender is more successful than the other would have been more appropriate and supported her argument a little better. Sandberg constantly states the fact that women need to take a stand against men to reach the amount of success they are at. One good statistic she does use states “A study found that of Millennial men and women who work in an organization with a woman in a senior role, only about 20 percent want to emulate her career.” (654). This is a good example of female discrimination but only if she used all her examples like this one she would have a more structured argument on the

The 3 types of alcohol that I choose my fictitious student to drink were regular beer, distilled hard liquor, and red wine. My fictitious student drinks 6 regular beers per week, adding up to 894 calories per week, 4,470 calories per month, and 53,640 calories per year. They also drink 3 distilled hard liquor 1.0oz shots per week, adding up to 195 calories per week, 975 calories per month, and 11,700 calories per year. Lastly, my fictitious student drinks 4 glasses of red wine per week, adding up to 320 calories per week, 1,600 calories per month, and 19,200 calories per year. On a monthly basis the student adds 2 pounds of fat for consuming 7,045 calories in alcohol. On a yearly basis the student will gain 24 pounds of fat for consuming 84,540 calories in alcohol.
When you drink alcohol, it cannot be broken down in your liver. It will go to the rest of the body. The brain is one of the location that it can go. Alcohol does affect the brain. It can mess up the controls of the movement of the brain, and judgement. It also can mess up your memory.
In her essay “Lean In : What Would You Do If You Weren’t Afraid?” author Sheryl Sandberg writes about the history of how women have been expected to think and act. She explains how in her family education and sports were a top priority, because she was raised to believe that men and women had equal potential. Sandberg thought that the stereotype, women stayed home to take care of the children, was demolished until after she graduated from college. She found that even though women had successfully graduated college most of them soon became stay at home moms while the men worked full-time. The author found in a survey that men would rather take on a leading role rather than women who do not want to take on the responsibility of having ‘power’.
In her widely watched 2010 TED talk “Why We Have Too Few Women Leaders” (currently with more than 1.5 million views) Sheryl Sandberg, currently Chief Operating Officer of Facebook (and the first woman to serve on Facebook's board) and formerly Vice President at Google, shares her experience of being one of the rare women in top global management positions and offers advice to women who would like to succeed in their corporate careers. In the 15-minute video, Sandberg asks how we can fix the problem of having too few women in top leadership positions in spite of many advances in women’s rights being made. She argues that the solution lies with women themselves, as individuals, and the messages they need to tell themselves and their daughters. This entails three steps: (1) ‘sit at the table’, meaning women should negotiate for themselves more assertively and stop underestimating their abilities; (2) ‘make your partner a real partner’ and establish shared/equal responsibilities between partners at home (i.e. with raising children and housework); and (3) ‘don’t ‘leave’ before you leave’, which means continuing to work at the best of your abilities (i.e. ‘leaning in’ instead of ‘leaning back’ when the possibility of having a child is entertained) until
In Lean in, Sandberg dig into serval parts to discuss how women can be a successful woman. She brings out that why female leadership are still less than men at all government and industry and why women in leadership roles is benefits to the business and society. In explain differences She combine personal experiences, data and research to explain how she get thought from different challenges and bias in her lives.
What is a lifestyle? A lifestyle is based merely on how a person or group lives. Particular lifestyles are perceived positively or negatively most certainly on the brain. Alcoholism is an addiction of the consumption of alcoholic liquor or the mental illness and compulsive behavior resulting from alcohol dependency.
Alcohol is dramatically changing and shaping society. Did you know that adults in Scotland drink on average 10.1 units of per alcohol per week? More and more adults and a worrying number of young people are buying and consuming alcohol for pleasure or relief from a stressful day at work or family problems. Most people don’t realise that alcohol is having negative effects on society creating many health problems. These problems may well include an increase in people experiencing diabetes and cancer, particularly bowel cancer.
