This is sexism plain and simple. Misogynistic male facebookers (who are probably white) are scapegoating a courageous female executive who has cleared the path for women leaders everywhere. She helped transform the company into a tech powerhouse and is not given enough credit (hint: it’s because she’s a woman).

I thought this being 2018 we would be beyond this blatant sexism, but I guess old habits die hard.

    Or it’s the fact that she personally organized a smear campaign of FBs rivals to draw heat away from FB and got caught doing it by the New York Times

      Do you think if this was a man he would be getting the same vitriol and hate spewed at her? It’s clear that sexism is at play. A very demoralising moment for women leaders everywhere.

      At the end of the day the buck stops at Zuckerberg. He knew exactly what was happening and did _nothing_ to stop it, yet sandberg gets all the heat? That’s what we call sexism in 2018

      I think zuck is at fault too, but from the NYT article, it really did seem like she was the one organizing the smear campaigns and that she had some generally shitty business practices but was treated like a god bc of who she is

      @OP: yes, except if it was a man he would have been pushed out (while saying he’s been planning to step down for personal reasons for months) and the story would have gone away.

      Why automatically call this related to sexism? Every leader has a patsy that they can let the blame go to when stuff goes bad. Making claims about - if theis was a guy... things would be different, is stupid

      I would start by reading the article and follow up by taking a gender studies class so you can view the situation from a feminist perspective

      Reverse sexism is real. Women are immune to any sort of fault
