It's OK for women to not want to have kids. It's OK for women to not want to get married.
Sheryl Sandberg mentions something that happens when I woman starts thinking about having a child, and proposes an alternative mentality the woman can adopt in this situation "Don't leave before you leave"
But what about the women that don't want kids, or don't want to think about having kids?
Is there another similar phenomenon pressuring women to drop out or "lean back"? That is, women who don't want kids, don't have plans to have kids now, who don't have plans to get married, or even women who don't presently want a long-term relationship- do these women face social pressure to make these life changes, and do those who don't or do not actively express plans to do so, feel some discrimination?
And if this discrimination exists: are we going to change it? Should we change it? how can it change?
