A new breed of feminist business is emerging in Silicon Valley, and it could make the world a better place.
In a new book called How to Make a Feminist Business, author Sarah Shook tells the story of the start-up Lean In, which is building the next generation of feminist businesses.
Shook is the CEO of the Lean In Collective, a nonprofit organization that helps start-ups grow by fostering a more progressive vision of the workplace.
In her new book, Shook lays out a roadmap for feminist businesses, which could help shape a new kind of world.
“This is not a post-feminist future.
This is not about the past.
This will not be a post-’70s world where everyone’s a woman,” Shook says.
“I believe this is a place where everyone can make a difference.”
In a nutshell, Shooks argues that there is a strong need for a new generation of women-owned businesses in Silicon, as well as for companies that are able to leverage the technology to promote feminist ideals.
In Lean In’s world, it’s not just about empowering women, but about empowering the next generations of women, Shiffos co-founder and CEO told Fortune.
“Women have the potential to create, to be better than men, and to change the world,” she says.
Women have the opportunity to do that now, and we need to do it now.
Shiffo is one of the founders of the group, which she founded in 2007.
Her book will be released this week, and the Lean in Collective is holding an event this Saturday to celebrate the book.
Lean In was founded by Shook, her husband and two young daughters, and they now have three children under the age of 18.
Shaffos cofounded the LeanIn Collective, which helps companies find leaders who share the same vision of empowering women.
She says the Leanin Collective is the first and most successful of its kind in Silicon valley.
Shafos is a longtime advocate of the progressive values of feminism.
“The way I see it, women are the engine of progress,” she told Fortune in 2015.
“It’s about making sure they have access to resources and skills, and that they can participate in the workforce, so they can change the lives of other women.”
In Lean On, Shaffo lays out the Lean-in vision for a better world.
In the Lean On world, Shafo believes that women can create a more positive and inclusive workplace, a place in which women feel valued, empowered, and treated with respect.
“When you’re a woman in a sexist world, you’re really stuck in a cycle of abuse and neglect, and you don’t have a voice,” Shafsons cofounder and COO, Rachel B. Bixby, told Fortune on Tuesday.
“So the idea is that women in the workplace are the ones who can take the power to be empowered, so women are not just the ones to go on the outside and say, ‘hey, I’m really unhappy here.'”
Lean On is a nonprofit group, and Shafoes cofounder, COO and CEO said that they are committed to giving back to the world.
Shafios said she’s not interested in the status quo.
She believes that a feminist world is possible.
“We need to be aware of what’s going on in the world and what’s happening to us, and I think that’s a really important thing for us to do, and also to be really vigilant about how we’re using technology to help change the situation,” she said.
In terms of Lean On’s vision for the future, Shifos said, “We’re looking to create a place of equality, a world where women have the ability to make an impact in their lives, so that they feel respected, and able to get their needs met.”
