When Michelob Light launched their 1984 “You can Have it All!” campaign I thought it was self-evidently ridiculous (actually, I still do). As such, while I appreciate Ann Marie Slaughter’s decision to discuss the sexism that still exists, her use of the phrase “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All,” has me asking: Really? That she writes “I still strongly believe that women can “have it all” (and that men can too)” has me gob-smacked.
Hyperbole (Madison Avenue style!) aside, it is an interesting piece that I hope you will read.
