The businesswoman speaks candidly about women’s success in the workplace and what it's like to be a working mom. Many applauded Sandberg for candidly discussing the difficulties of balancing work and life, but critics questioned how much the Harvard grad truly knew about the day to day struggles of the average working woman.
