  1. [We assume] that the worker who works longest is most committed as opposed to valuing time management and efficiency at getting things done over the length of time. And second, [we assume] that that time has to be spent at the office.

    — On today’s Fresh Air, Princeton professor Anne-Marie Slaughter details the balancing act that women face when holding high-powered positions and raising children at the same time. She also details what needs to change both in workplaces and in society to create equal opportunities for all working women.

  1. I have a mountain of work to do this morning. (Two interviews, one review.)
It will be an uphill battle to finish before deadlines.
Related: Our show today is on work/life balance and whether women can “have it all.”

    Tomorrow: Anne-Marie Slaughter talks about her new Atlantic Magazine cover story “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All.” She says if we believe in equal opportunity for all women, some things at the workplace and in society have to change.

  1. All of the qualities that you need to be a good opinion columnist tend to be qualities that aren’t valued in women.

Of the 5,193 public outdoor sculptures of individuals in the United States, only 394, or less than 8 percent, are of women….And none of the 44 national memorials managed by the National Park  Service (such as the Lincoln Memorial) specifically focuses on women and  their accomplishments….
  The  Vietnam Women’s Memorial in Washington [was] dedicated in 1993 after a  nine-year effort to bring it to fruition. But it didn’t happen easily,  according to its founder.
“It was incredible  how hard we had to work not only to get a sculpture, but one that looked  like women,” says Diane Evans, who had been an Army first lieutenant  and head nurse in Vietnam and spearheaded the initiative. “We were told  by J. Carter Brown, the head of the National Gallery of Art in  Washington, D.C., that a woman’s statue would upset the delicate balance  of tension at the Vietnam Memorial.” (via Washington Post)

  1. "It’s just such a tangled-up issue, the way women present themselves — whether or not they choose to put their thumbs in their panties on the cover of Maxim and judge each other back and forth on it. It’s a complicated issue and we didn’t go much further on saying anything other than to say, ‘Yeah, it’s a complicated issue and we’re all kind of figuring it out as we go.’

    In the episode [of 30 Rock called “TGS Hates Women”], we have a fake website called joanofsnark.com that the women at Jezebel.com immediately recognized that it was their website basically and it was. … I don’t have the answer. But I find it interesting that Olivia [Munn, a correspondent on The Daily Show] gets people who go after her on some of these sites because she’s beautiful and that’s part of it. I think if she were kind of an aggressive, heavier girl with a Le Tigre mustache posing in her underpants, people would be like ‘That’s amazing. Good for you.’ But because she’s very beautiful, people are like, ‘You’re using that.’ It’s a mess. We can’t figure it out.”

  1. When Wilma Vaught joined the Air Force in 1957 and started her first  day of training, she was unsure about a lot of things, even the basics.
The one thing she did know is that she wanted to be in charge. “I wanted to lead,” says the now-retired brigadier general.
And she has been doing just that ever since. View in High-Res
