Sarah Posner (sarahposner.com, God's Profits) and E.J. Graff (The American Prospect, Brandeis University)

On The Posner Show, Sarah talks with E.J. about the reaction to Anne-Marie Slaughter’s Atlantic cover story, “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All.” Did the way the article was framed do its argument justice? E.J. says Slaughter’s piece did a service to everyone bogged down by the more-than-40-hour-a-week expectations of modern work life. Do we imagine an iconic childhood summer vacation that no longer exists? Did Slaughter’s piece actually sound the death knell for the “can women have it all” frame? Plus: The byline gender gap.
