High-profile working mom Anne-Marie Slaughter penned the article "Why women still can't have it all" for the July/August cover story of "The Atlantic." Though one of her colleagues who held a senior position in the White House, according to the article, warned her against writing this piece, she went ahead with it, saying that women need to stop fooling themselves -- they really can't have it all, even with ambition and a supportive spouse.
Slaughter stepped down from a powerful position working for Hillary Clinton as the first female director of policy planning at the State Department, a foreign-policy dream job. She wrote that her teenage sons needed her more.
Do you agree with Slaughter? Do you think women really can't have it all?
Read reactions to Slaughter's article by Juliette Kayyem (who was quoted twice in the article) in The Angle, which provides online commentary and news analysis from The Boston Globe, columnist Lisa Belkin at The Huffington Post and Jodi Kantor at The New York Times.
"The Atlantic" invites the public to chat with Slaughter June 29 at 11 a.m. about her article and to submit questions ahead of time.
