The Lean In author is cheering women on, but she writes in a lengthy Facebook post, “I have already heard the rumblings of a backlash.”

    Over the last two months, every day has seemed to bring new allegations of sexual misconduct against powerful men, who are facing real consequences for their actions. And people are already saying, “‘This is why you shouldn’t hire women,’” Sandberg writes.

    “Actually, this is why you should,” she continues. Hiring, mentoring and promoting women is the only long-term solution to sexual harassment, which is all about power, according to Sandberg. In her post, she also outlines some basic guidelines that companies should follow if they’re serious about preventing harassment at work. “Doing right by women in the workplace does not just mean treating them with respect. It also means not isolating or ignoring them,” Sandberg writes. “And it means making access equal. Whether that means you take all your direct reports out to dinner or none of them, the key is to give men and women equal opportunities to succeed.”

    In the past, the onus has been on women to watch their words, dress, and behavior to make sure they didn't send the wrong message, and invite unwanted attention.

    It seems to me that the backlash is about men having to take responsibility for, and monitor their behavior to make sure they aren't acting inappropriately, violating a woman's boundaries, and they don't like it.

    That statement makes no sense whatsoever. Please clarify/explain.
