"Throughout [Facebook CEO Sheryl Sandberg's book] Lean In, the responsibility is placed on the professional woman (implicitly white) to individually surmount structural inequality, drawing from a repertoire of impossible skills. What exactly is authentic about this remarkable monster who can simultaneously speak truth and not cause pain, be honest but not inappropriate, speak up but not seek attention, communicate delicately but not seem negative? This impossible figure is crowded with parasites, eating away at her as she is asked to grapple with what Sandberg describes as 'internal obstacles' without a thought for systemic change."

I agree with you about structural change, SD. I haven't read Sandberg's book, but that article speaks at length about female workers in industries like food harvesting and production who are subjected to sexual violence at an alarming rate—and who are generally left behind by these kinds of movements because there just isn't anywhere to "lean in" out in the fields, the slaughterhouses, the canneries, etc.

Obviously, that world is not what Sandberg's book is about so it can't truly be judged based on that. But there are far more women worldwide doing that work (especially in the global south) than in our pretty privileged white collar industries. It makes me (and the article's author) sad that those jobs and the violence that is so inescapable for those in them can be so easy to set aside.

How long does it take you to feel creatively "burned out" on an account? Do you like to hop every project or do you prefer having a deeper relationship with the brand?

Imagine being the first agency to unionize. Imagine the press. For an industry that is so fueled by media attention, it would be a company's dream... wouldn't it?
