Lean Out

Lean Out Sheryl Sandberg s business advice book Lean In was heralded as a defining moment in attitudes to women in business But for all its commercial success it proposed a model of feminism that was individualistic and unthreatening to capital In her powerful debut work Lean Out acclaimed journalist Dawn Foster unpicks how the purportedly feminist message of Sandberg s book neatly exempts patriarchy capitalism and business from any responsibility for changing the position of women in contemporary culture It looks at the rise of a corporate 1 feminism and at how feminism has been defanged and depoliticised at a time when women have borne the brunt of the financial crash and the gap between rich and poor is widening faster than ever Surveying business media culture and politics Foster asks whether this trickledown feminism offers any material gain for women collectively or acts as mere window-dressing PR for the corporations who caused the financial crash She concludes that leaning out of the corporate model is a more effective way of securing change than leaning in
