Option 1: Watch the following TedTalk by Sheryl Sandberg (top executive at Facebook and creator of the “lean in” phenomena). Then answer the following questions:
1. Why don’t women “sit at the table”?
2. Why is success for men positive and for women negative?

Option 2: Interview a woman who is at least 20 years older than you. Ask her about the changes she has seen in relations to women, work and family during her lifetime. How were things when she was growing up in comparison to now. Post her interview response in your main thread and add some of your own thoughts to the future for women in the U.S.
