  1. At first I thought that your comments taking Slaughter to task for leaving out class issues were just piling on negativity to an article that was focused purposefully on one issue. Once I read your reasoning, I could see how correct you are. We cannot expect real change until those of us who are most dependent on their paychecks have some measure of balance and security. Otherwise, it’s just a desperate race to survive with no time for their family, let alone themselves.

    And you get bonus points for calling out 9 to 5. Funny and poignant then. … Funny and poignant now!

  2. Misty,

    Thank you for your thoughtful articulation of this issue. I went the private practice route, which allows me the flexibility I want for my family. But, I had the privilege of having a partner with health insurance, and paid sick time–and a second income to help us through the lean, scary start-up years. I have seen in his workplace the need to redesign the system. You are completely correct that this is not a women’s issue. It is a men’s issue and a family issue and a societal issue.

    Well said!
