Why We Love Her
We love Sheryl Sandberg for too many reasons to count, but if we had to pick just three, here’s what we’d choose -
Sandberg is a highly influential activist in the fight for gender equality. She authored the groundbreaking and best-selling book, Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead. Lean In is a “feminist manifesto” that discusses the lack of women in leadership roles and empowers women to reach their potential.
- Sheryl Sandberg also spearheaded a campaign to ultimately encourage and support the development of leadership skills among young girls. The Ban Bossy campaign urges people everywhere to remove the limiting word “bossy” from their vocabulary.
- Sandberg gave one of the most popular TED Talks of all time - “Why We Have Too Few Women Leaders.” The talk sparked a global discussion around the fact that a smaller percentage of women make it to the top of their professions when compared to men.

Our Favorite Sheryl Sandberg Quote
“Being confident and believing in your own self-worth is necessary to achieving your potential.”
Why She Would Love Uwila Warrior
In all honesty, Sheryl and Uwila Warrior are a match made in heaven. Why, you ask? Because Sheryl Sandberg lives her life with a daring, no-limits mentality. She chooses to not let anyone or anything restrict what she is capable of doing.
At Uwila, we believe women shouldn't be bound or constricted by anything in life, and certainly not by their underwear. Women shouldn't have to twist their bodies or lifestyles to fit into the standard society has created for them.
Women who wear Uwila strive to be bold, intelligent, and strong, and they don’t apologize for it. We believe Sheryl Sandberg perfectly embodies these qualities. And this is why we think she’d totally rock our “Kickin’ Butt” panties.
Thank you, Sheryl Sandberg, for inspiring and motivating us daily to be women who lean in and take our seat at the table.
