After five years of leaning in, everything and nothing has changed

    Claire Suddath and Rebecca Greenfield write, “Five years ago this month, Donald Trump was planning a Miss Universe pageant in Moscow; the Weinstein Co. was riding high on three Academy Award wins for Silver Linings Playbook and Django Unchained; and Katie King was a 32-year-old attorney, all wide-eyed because she’d just read Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead, by Sheryl Sandberg, the chief operating officer of Facebook Inc. Having the kind of career she wanted, King realized, was going to be a lot harder than she’d thought. “Lean In blew my mind,” she says. “Here I was, a raging feminist and a corporate lawyer for the city’s electric utility company, and I’d never asked for a raise. I couldn’t have articulated why at the time, but I just didn’t think I should. I didn’t want to be a problem.”
