Women at the top: Sheryl Sandberg, bell hooks, and sexism in tech

These two articles aren't directly related, but I thought they bring out similar themes and discussion points. The first is the article I mentioned in class where bell hooks critiques Lean In as "faux feminism." It's long and at times I found it a little difficult to keep up, but it also has a lot of great points. (Disclaimer: I haven't read Lean In.) The second is an article about women in the tech industry called "F**k You, I Got Mine: Women in Tech for the Patriarchy," which also critiques Lean In for its support of white privilege and talks about how and why women are pushed to make choices that support themselves over women as a whole.

Here's the two articles:
