A little less than a year ago, The Atlantic Magazine published Kate Bolek’s All The Single Ladies. That article argued, among other things, that “it’s time to embrace new ideas about romance and family—and to acknowledge the end of “traditional” marriage as society’s highest ideal.”
Now, in its July/Aug. edition The Atlantic has published a new article that I think will be equally read and discussed, Why Women Still Can’t Have It All by Anne-Marie Slaughter. This article, like the previous one, seeks to break through some of the ‘accepted myths’ that society has heaped upon women.
In fact, I suspect Slaughter’s article will receive more attention and create more conversation than did Bolek’s as it will speak to even more women, and hopefully men, women of a variety of ages, across several generations.
Rather than spend your time reading about this new article, read it for yourself. It’s a bit long, but worthy.
Let MillersTime readers know what you think of what Slaughter writes.
