Working Mothers: Having It All vs. Wanting It All

Is The Atlantic magazine trying to horn in on the “mommy wars?” After two articles on working mothers vs. stay-at-home moms in the last week, I’d have to say yes. Except that while one of the pieces is really just tossing a new log on an old fire, a new piece is worth a read and should be used as a jumping off point in a real conversation about how we, as a society, view women, work, parenting and our children.

I’ve got the scoop on the article entitled “Why Women Still Can’t Have it All,” at my column the Spin Cycle.

And watch out, Sheryl Sandberg. I think someone’s finally (and successfully) called you out on your theory that because you, as a high level professional can leave your office every day at 5 p.m. to be with your kids, that the rest of us average women are even able to toy with that idea without the fear of losing our jobs.
