Some fascinating pieces that touched on the themes of motherhood, feminism and our relentless quest to "have it all," recently caught my eye.
Kate Slaughter's July cover story for The Atlantic on "Why Women Still Can't Have it All," really stirred a firestorm of opinion.
Slaughter, who left a position of power to take care of her two teenaged children, charges that women who have managed to be both
mothers and top professionals are superhuman, rich, or self-employed. Whether you agree or not, Slaughter's article is certainly a thought-provoking read.
Another interesting story that recently appeared in the Ottawa Citizen asks whether Marissa Mayer, the super-pregnant new Yahoo! CEO, will become a role model for legions of talented women who dream
of “having it all” — marriage, motherhood and professional success, or fold under the pressure, like too many other mothers who
climbed higher than their families could bear.
