Last year, Facebook Chief Operations Officer Sheryl Sandberg released Lean In, a book advocating for female empowerment in the workplace. In it, she wrote, “We hold ourselves back in ways both big and small, by lacking self-confidence, by not raising our hands, and by pulling back when we should be leaning in.”

Allyn Fisher-Ilan, who serves as a correspondent on Israeli and Palestinian security and economic affairs for Reuters, can certainly attest to that constant push and pull Sandberg refers to in her book.
