Zosia Mamet Says That Women Shouldn't Have To "Lean In" To Be Successful
"No matter what we as individual women want, no matter what our goals, we have to support one another."
Zosia Mamet, aka Shoshanna from Girls, wrote about the definition of success in her latest column for Glamour, and explained why women should stop being so obsessed with "making it".
"We are so obsessed with 'making it' these days," she wrote, "we’ve lost sight of what it means to be successful on our own terms."
She explains that with the narrow definition of success, if she wanted to give up acting and "open a small coffee shop in Vermont" everyone would think she was "insane".
She said that women's need to succeed was a by-product of a good thing: feminism. "Feminism was meant to empower us as women, to build us up for fighting on male-dominated battlefields."
Mamet says that women should support each other in their decisions and in their own personal definitions of success.
Well said, Zosia. Well said.
