I was reading Tina Fey’s book Bossypants (Amazon) as part of a group of us at work – after reading Lean In (Amazon) and having a discussion group, this came up as one to read next. Then I read an article complaining about her feminism, which I went looking for only to find this article about criticism of her, which I found more compelling so I’ll share that instead.
It’s an amusing book, and one I enjoyed as a memoir. In terms of being a successful woman, little was mentioned, although it was clear she has an incredible work ethic. In fact, I started the book looking for any insight into how she became so successful but there were so many depreciating remarks that I finished the book with the question, is she so uncomfortable with it?
