Work-Life Balance

Reflections on the “Mommy Track”

Interesting reflection about the “work-life” balance issue (which we used to hear more about prior to the Great Recession) in Slate.  Its written by a 1993 Harvard Law School graduate who did both the “fast” track and the “Mommy Track.”  Those are her terms, though part of her article asks whether there aren’t better ones.

Among other things, she reports that the majority of the women in her class at HLS have stepped off the “fast” track, but as many as a third of them have part-time, flexible job arrangements that are working for them.
