The front page of today’s New York Times includes an article about Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg’s new book, Lean In, which encourages women to stay in the workforce and be more ambitious in their careers. Many have naturally compared and contrasted her arguments and advice with that of Anne-Marie Slaughter, whose July 2012 Atlantic cover story “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All” set off a massive debate on the topic of women and work.
Sandberg and Slaughter have slightly different ideologies, but the Times pits them as warring opposites, calling Slaughter “Ms. Sandberg’s chief critic.” The piece also says, “Both women quietly developed perhaps the most notable feminist row since Ms. Friedan refused to shake Gloria Steinem’s hand decades ago” and that, “The Slaughter-Sandberg match may represent what some may see as a welcome new phase in the debate over work and motherhood.”
But Slaughter doesn’t agree:
- Two weeks until Nov 8, there is no shortage of election forecasts. BuzzFeed's data reporters break down what the numbers mean.
- Confused refugees question what's next as French authorities begin to clear out the Calais "Jungle" camp.
- Obamacare premiums will jump an average 25% in 2017, but federal officials say subsidies will keep costs low for most people.
- The first Gilmore Girls trailer is finally here and it looks like Luke and Lorelai are together 💛☕️
