Women in Corporate America: Is this 2013 or 1953?

It's called the "Free Market". The Free Market has determined that it now requires TWO incomes to raise a family. Enough working spouses over time raised the standard of living enough where the Market and Businesses saw prices and services could be increased based on the Market. If you don't like it, too bad. Conservatives whine and scream about the "Free Market" and "Capitalism", and this is the PERFECT example. Waaaah, my wife has to work but would rather stay home. Well, why don't you take Conservatives advice and "innovate" and use that "rugged individualism" and get a second job?

Actually it's a perfect example of Government messing with the Free Market and taking half of everything we earn so that we need two incomes to take up the slack.

Well, at least your wife CAN work at a paid job. (If she stayed home, she would still be WORKING. Very few women are ladies of leisure.) For a long time, my ex-husband was stuck with a handicapped girlfriend, later wife, who COULD NOT work at a paid job. This was extremely frustrating as we had to beg to pay our bills.
Count your blessings. Also, see if you can cut back a little. You might find it will be OK for the wife to relinquish the paid job for the job as home manager.

Is Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg really complaining -- in 2013 -- that "only" 14 percent of executive officers are female, that women earn 77 cents compared to a dollar earned by men, and that women hurt their own advancement by failing to "lean in" and become more assertive?

Is this 2013 or 1953?

In her new book, "Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead," Sandberg writes that "while women continue to outpace men in educational achievement," women over the last 10 years have "ceased making real progress" in the top ranks of "corporate America."
