Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In is a massive cultural phenomenon and its title has become an instant catchphrase for empowering women.

The book soared to the top of bestseller lists internationally, igniting global conversations about women and ambition. Sandberg packed theatres, dominated opinion pages, appeared on every major television show and on the cover of Time magazine, and sparked ferocious debate about women and leadership.

Ask most women whether they have the right to equality at work and the answer will be a resounding yes, but ask the same women whether they'd feel confident asking for a raise, a promotion, or equal pay, and some reticence creeps in.

The statistics, although an improvement on previous decades, are certainly not in women's favour - of 197 heads of state, only twenty-two are women. Women hold just 20 percent of seats in parliaments globally, and in the world of big business, a meagre eighteen of the Fortune 500 CEOs are women.

In Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook COO and one of Fortune magazine's Most Powerful Women in Business - draws on her own experience of working in some of the world's most successful businesses and looks at what women can do to help themselves, and make the small changes in their life that can effect change on a more universal scale.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A landmark manifesto * New York Times *
Lively, entertaining, urgent, and yes, even courageous ... Lean In is both a radical read and incredibly accessible ... While it's obvious that women have much to gain from reading Sandberg's book, so do men - perhaps even more so * Guardian *
A brave book to write ... direct, funny and critical * The Economist *
The business manual of the year * The Times *
Any woman should welcome Lean In as a guide to cracking the glass ceiling * Independent *
