  • It’s time for “Who Said That?”  Yesterday’s quote was:  “I want every little girl who is told she is bossy to be told he has leadership skills.”

The winner is Madison Buttry.  She had the correct answer which was A) Sheryl Sandberg. 

So, who is Sheryl Sandberg?  Although Mark Zuckerberg wasn’t officially looking for a COO for Facebook, in 2007, when he met Sandberg at a party, he knew she was the perfect fit.  Zuckerberg hired her away from Google, when Sandberg was vice president of Global Online Sales and Operations, in 2008, to serve as Facebook’s number 2 executive. 

Today, Sandberg is also well known for writing Lean In, the bestselling book urging women to take control of their careers and fight against barriers preventing them from assuming leadership roles.  She later founded LeanIn.org, which aims to empower women to achieve their goals.

Here is your quote for today, March 7th.  Remember to submit your answer to the Library by the end of the day today.  Who said:  “We must tell girls their voices are important.”  Is the correct answer…… A) Martha Stewart?  B) Safra Catz?  Or C) Malala Yousafzai (Malālah Yūsafzay)?
