Ifill on Having Even Half and What More Needs to Be Done
posted by Danielle Citron
My colleague (and guest blogger) Sherrilyn Ifill has an insightful post on Anne-Marie Slaughter’s attention-grabbing Atlantic piece and future book on the silly notion of “having it all.” As Professor Ifill’s post makes clear, Slaughter’s lament captures a microscopic part of the problem–most working women, especially minorities, cannot remotely have any part of the illusory promise. Professor Ifill calls upon professional women, the 1%, to help the plight of the other 99% of working women with kids, because they can and because they should. Professor Ifill’s post on the relevance of legal scholarship rightly captured lots of attention, and this post should too.
