The Ambition Collision

This article my Lisa Miller brings up a lot things I feel embarrassed to admit.

As a son, brother, colleague, member of society, I guess our work is not done here. Women are still not treated as equals and catch themselves wondering if they should retreat back to the status quo. Forget that. I hope we press on and break down the glass ceilings that we are aware of and the ones that we have yet to discover.

The myth of female empowerment has always been on a collision course with the reality.

Another interesting highlight from the article:

 “I think possibly work has replaced ‘and they got married and lived happily ever after,’ and that is a false promise,” says Ellen Galinsky, co-founder of the Families and Work Institute. “Everyone needs to have more than one thing in their life. We find people who are dual-centric to be most satisfied. If people put an equivalent stress on their life outside of their job they get further ahead and are more satisfied at their job.”
