When Anne-Marie Slaughter’s Atlantic article, “Why Women Still Can’t Have it All,” first appeared, it immediately went viral, sparking a firestorm of debate across countries and continents. Within four days, it had become the most-read article in the history of the magazine. In the following months, Slaughter became a leading voice in the discussion on work-life balance and on women’s changing role in the workplace. In this conversation with The Texas Tribune editor, Emily Ramshaw, Slaughter will burst the bubble on all the “half-truths” we tell women about “having it all,” and teach us what is really necessary to get true gender equality, both in the workplace and at home.
SPEAKER: Anne-Marie Slaughter, author, Unfinished Business & president, New America
HOST: Emily Ramshaw, editor, The Texas Tribune
