The news about women taking double or even triple shifts as they work from home and with daycares closed is no longer new. It is a problem and can push back what we’ve won in gender equality at work to more years back. What is new and has not been highlighted is that, this situation we’re in is also an opportunity to break stereotypes.

I first read Sheryl Sandberg’s book Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead in 2014. The book has so much valuable insights about career women, women in leadership and moms with careers that it remains valuable to me to this day. As the cliche’ goes, it is “more relevant than ever.” When women ask me which book about leadership they should read, I always suggest this book.
