Dr. Peggy Drexler

So much of the advice geared towards women who choose to go back to work, focuses on how they can learn to accept the sacrifices that go along with working while raising children. I'd argue that in many cases, going back to work is not a sacrifice at all but the best decision a woman can make not only for herself, but also for her family.

What do Slaughter and Sandberg know about an average woman's struggles? Not much. Between the two of them, they have more wealth and political power than most small towns. That's what we can learn from them.
