Welcome, once again, to MSMS. I hope you’re making it through your summer reading list. I also hope you’ll find the time to take part in a national conversation about the future of women in the working world by reading Ann-Marie Slaughter’s brilliant piece in this month’s Atlantic Magazine. (If you’re not a regular reader of this magazine, you should be! You might also want to start reading The New Yorker, Discovery, and The Oxford American.)
This year, like most years in recent history, there will be more women than men enrolled at MSMS. How does this reflect trends in culture and education that will affect families and workers over the next twenty years? Dr. Slaughter offers some provocative analysis.
