Executive feminism: "It doesn't have to be for everybody"

Salon's Irin Carmon discusses Sheryl Sandberg's controversial book on "Good Morning America"

Controversy around Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg's new book has been brewing for weeks. Although “Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead” was just released today, many critics have responded vehemently with accusations that Sandberg's advice for women is narrowly targeted toward middle- and upper-class female professionals.

Salon's Irin Carmon recently interviewed Sandberg and appeared on ABC's "Good Morning America" to share her thoughts on the controversy. "She's offering a lesson based on her experience and that's it," Carmon said. "It doesn't have to be for everybody."
