Can women have it all?
In 2013, Anne - Marie Slaughter brought a really interesting view point about gender equality to the table. She stated that - women can't still have it all, this because even if you are or have as many super powers as possible to lead a company while building a family the society is not ready for it yet. I agree with her about the fact that we as a society still think as gender equality just as men and women sharing the same success on top of big corporations but really forgetting about the other half of this "equality" equation needs , whereas we need to start thinking about not only value women on men terms but all the other way around too. Nonetheless a lot of CEOs and several women leaders disagree with Slaughter and stated women can have it all, but not at the same time- pointing out the difficulties that a family and a career could bring into your life if trying to achieve both at the same time. Let's think for a moment about what could be the impact of both sayings for younger generations of women and men trying to enter the "real" world , should any of this be spoken out or should we talked about we as women can have it all, even when we know having the perfect life balance is extremely hard to get? What kind of mindsets, beliefs and values do you think we need (as a society) to change for this real equality between men and women to happen in every life matter!? Thanks for sharing your opinion.
