Princeton Professor Anne-Marie Slaughter is changing the conversation about women in the workplace. Her Atlantic article, Why Women Still Can't Have It All, is one of the most read articles in the Atlantic's history of online publication with nearly a million page views in less than a week. Women are proclaiming the article to be this generation's manifesto on work-life balance for women.
In the article, Slaughter outlines many well-known problems for women in the workplace, explains the work-life balance myth and suggests a few solutions. Many of the issues she outlines are true for women attorneys and women in high level roles in the legal field. It's a worthwhile read...for women and for men.
