Unfinished Business

Women Men Work Family 

When Anne-Marie Slaughter accepted her dream job as the first female director of policy planning at the U.S. State Department in 2009, she was confident she could juggle the demands of her position in Washington, D.C., with the responsibilities of her family life in suburban New Jersey. Her husband and two young sons encouraged her to pursue the job, she had a tremendously supportive boss, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and she had been moving up on a high-profile career track since law school. But then life intervened. Parenting needs caused her to make a decision to leave the State Department and return to an academic career that gave her more time for her family. The reactions to her choice to leave Washington because of her kids led her to question the feminist narrative she grew up with. Her subsequent article for The Atlantic, "Why Women Still Can't Have It All", created a firestorm, sparked intense national debate, and became one of the most-read pieces in the magazine's history. Now, in her refreshing and forthright voice, Slaughter returns with her vision for what true equality between men and women really means, and how we can get there.
