An excerpt from Dear Marissa Mayer critics: It’s time to rally around great leaders everywhere:
"Some have claimed that Mayer’s not an accurate representation of a woman working in technology. Above all, a high-fashion woman like this could certainly not be relatable. But who’s to say what a role model should look like? It’s always going to be something, and it’s time to live and let live and celebrate the increasing diversity of those among us who dare to lead and be themselves along the way.”
It’s ridiculous, controlling, and chilling to read comments from so-called feminists who still believe a woman must assume a strident, sexless mien in order to succeed in business. You be you, let Mayer be Mayer, and let’s all push for benchmarks of workplace excellence that have nothing to do with fuckability.
