A must-read for any full-time working mom or for those – like myself – who chose to no longer be a full-time working mom. Anne Marie Slaughter does a marvellous job at stating and explaining the truth: women cannot have it all, despite what the feminists will have you believe. Every thought I’ve ever had about the work-life balance debate is addressed and explored in here. As I was reading the article, I felt like I was cheering her to the finish line. She gets it.
