Anne-Marie Slaughter, former director of policy planning for the State Department under Hillary Clinton, called for a “new social contract,” to complete “the second half of the women’s movement” in a speech Monday at Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School, where she had served as dean from 2002 to 2009.
“We’ve made enormous progress, but we still have a long way to go,” she told the crowd of about 200 (female-male ratio about 4:1) mostly Princeton University students and faculty with a small contingent from the larger community.
Advocating a focus on care, men, public policy, and collective action, Ms. Slaughter explained how her thinking on the subject of gender equity, work, and family has changed since her 2012 Atlantic Monthly piece “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All” became one of the most widely read and hotly debated articles in the magazine’s history. more
