This successful businesswoman, has recently published a book out of her experiences titled Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead. In the book, Sandberg encourages women to stand for leadership in the business world. Sandberg, who writes, “It is a very obvious fact that men still rule the world. This means that the voices of women are not heard as much as men's”, also stated that she wrote her book for the women who desire to reach the peak of their own fields or to fulfill any aim that they strongly wish for. Sandberg's book inspired the Lean In movement in USA. Lean In is committed to offering women the ongoing inspiration and support to help them achieve their goals.
