In Order to Be a Successful Women
Hundreds of years passed and women still fighting for their success, still fighting to get a clear answer of one question, “How women can reach success?” In discussions of how women can be successful, one controversial issue has been announced. On the one hand, Sheryl Sandberg, the author of “Lean In: What Would You Do If you Weren 't Afraid” argues that in order to be successful, women need to lean in or there will be a cost in return.

While Andrea and Miranda were in the car, Andrea said “What if this is not what I want, I mean what If I don 't want to live the way you live” Miranda respond “don 't be ridicules Andrea everybody wants this, everybody want to be us” Andrea leave the car, reject Miranda phone call and through out the phone with a big smile of success and victory in her
