While women are slowly increasing their representation in the board room and in political office, many are still routinely forced to choose between family and career. Anne-Marie Slaughter, one of Washington’s most influential voices, has been leading the discussion on the gender gap since her pivotal 2012 article in The Atlantic, “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All,” which she wrote after leaving the State Department to return to academia and spend more time with her family. The article sparked debate for women across America and challenged traditional views of gender equality. Join The Chicago Council’s Women and Global Development Forum for her thoughts on why the feminist movement remains unfinished and how it still fails to provide a solution to these challenges that will unite all women.
Anne-Marie Slaughter’s new book, Unfinished Business: Women Men Work Family will be available for purchase and signing via The Book Cellar after the program.
