Larry Summers + Sheryl Sandberg

Hi, did you know that Larry Summers, recent Obama favorite for chairman of the Fed, and espouser of the garbage, “maybe girls don’t go into STEM because they’re bad at math,” theory, is a long-time mentor of Sheryl Sandberg? She talks about it in her book.

Twitter recently told me, that in fact, he refers to Sheryl Sandberg in a “she’s not like those other women” capacity in his infamous speech.

ctrl+f for:
“a young woman who worked very closely with me at the Treasury and who has subsequently gone on to work at Google highly successfully, is a 1994 graduate of Harvard Business School”

(h/t Irin Carmon)

ok, that’s my Sheryl Sandberg quota for the day.
