How Women Can ‘Have it All’

Despite societal gains in gender equality, balancing work, marriage, and children remains a huge hurdle for many women. Can working women “have it all?” Does motherhood get in the way of climbing up the corporate ladder? In “Unfinished Business,” Anne-Marie Slaughter, President and CEO of the New America Foundation and working mom, outlines the many ways women–those with and without children–are penalized in their careers. Change is possible, but she says “leaving dad in charge” and changing traditional assumptions about masculinity are needed before real equality can happen. She’ll discuss the juggling act performed by mothers everywhere and give insight into the key areas of the economy and society that need to change before women–and their male counterparts–are a little closer to “having it all.”

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
