Fast forward to the present where women are now torn between having it, not having it, trying to have it or pretending to have it all. After all, nowadays if we are not leaning in and slow cooking at the same time, we definitely don't have it all, do we?

Making this choice was one of the hardest things I had ever had to do. It was admitting that everything I had worked so hard for, everything I had aspired to achieve and prove, was neither what I had expected nor what I wanted. "Having it all" was not all it was pumped up to be.

I have spent too much time and energy making myself feel inadequate and somehow lacking, and I know too many people who are great people, who are well-loved people, who also feel inadequate and somehow lacking. And it makes me sad and angry and frustrated... and absolutely determined to find a way to stop the madness.

"Having it all" is a myth. "Having" is far too passive, far too effortless a verb for what it takes to combine career and family life. "All" suggests a sense of wholeness that in reality most parents who earn paychecks rarely experience. Instead, we live an ever-shifting, moment-by-moment dynamic.

Joanne Nicholson, Ph.D.

For some slice of American women who are mothers, "having it all" conjures up notions of marriage, a family, a professional position, a home in a safe neighborhood with a decent school system and opportunities to live a better life down the road. For women with psychiatric conditions, life is a different struggle. But with the right support, mothers and almost every person with mental illness can succeed.

Having it all isn't just determined by a person's or family's choices. Those choices are informed and even forced by policy, customs, structures that are way beyond the control of the individual. Outside forces shape a woman's choices whether she realizes it or not.

Why does this discussion revolve around women's struggles to reach the pinnacle of success in their careers while raising happy, well-adjusted kids? Doesn't "having it all" mean different things to different people? And what does it really mean to today's professional women?
