Professor Michelle Ryan from the University of Exeter questions whether we should focus on empowering women to lean in since this implies that inequality in workplaces is due to women’s personal preferences.  She suggests that, to address persistent gender inequality, we need to move away from trying to fix women and instead create workplaces where women feel they belong, which promote and reward women and are open to change.
