SAN ANTONIO -- There's a new dialogue emerging about women's rights.
Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg is leading the discussion through her new book "Lean In." The book examines why there are so few women at the top in corporate America.
"This is deeply personal for me," Sandberg says. "I want every little girl who someone says their bossy to be told instead of have leadership skills."
Sandberg wants women to succeed and says it's alarming how far they have not come. There are only 21 women CEOs in Fortune 500 companies, and progress is stagnant.
The 43-year-old mother of two says women often don't compete for promotions because they're worrying too early about the future.
"They start leaning back," Sandgers says. "They say, 'Oh, I'm busy. I wanna have a child one day. I couldn't possibly, you know, take on more' or 'I'm still learning on my current job.' I've never had a man say that stuff to me."
Critics say it's easy for a billionaire to fire off ways women need to change. But sandberg is not apologetic, and she recognizes that women can't take all the blame.
She says discrimination at work and a lack of affordable childcare contribute to the slow crawl to the top.
Sandberg says the point is to start a dialogue. So, what do you think about the topic? CLICK HERE
