You Can't Have it All—and You Don't Need To

It’s a question that every woman faces at some point in her life: Can I really have it all? Between work, family, and everything in between, it’s no wonder that women feel so pressured all the time.

However, it turns out that there is no such thing as “having it all,” and changing the way we view gender equality could make things a lot easier for everyone.

Check out Anne-Marie Slaughter’s TED talk on how we can all do our part to ensure that no one feels like she needs to “have it all” ever again.
