Everything else about this post is perfect and amazing, though.

When I got to the end, I literally said "oh no" out loud.
@Bittersweet "You've accomplished a lot for a 40-year-old man-- CEO of a big company and all that-- but let's talk about how you don't have any children/are unmarried and what that signifies about your capacity for TRUE fulfilment."
Wouldn't it be cool if powerful men were asked in interviews whether or not they are feminists and care about working conditions for women? Or one powerful man, maybe? Or just a man, any man?

@leonstj Nah, she's right, she's not a feminist. She's basically saying, "I got mine; everyone else can screw off." And her decisions at Yahoo show that too. She can build a nursery in her office, but no other female workers can work from home to take care of their children. I prefer her steely, damaging honesty to Sheryl Sandberg's false girl-power "feminism." It's pretty clear neither of them are truly interested in dismantling sexism in our society. They've been able to rise to the top because of a combination of privilege and hard work, but both deny the true social forces that got them to where they are and keep so many other woman out of the corner office.

If a powerful woman can't just blandly admit she's a feminist rather than back-pedaling and saying what she thinks the guys around her want to hear, she's not actually powerful at all, is she?
