This is an interesting essay about women in management. Essentially, the author says that most women choose the "Mommy TracK" rather than the corporate management ladder. Professional women are beating the publicity drums for more women to stay in the company environment, but they are having a tough time getting colleagues to listen. What the activists have missed is that Motherhood is a profession as great as anything that a corporation could confer on an individual. Many women choose not to divide their time between the office and home. To them, the home is more important. Kudos to them. That, however, leaves professional women gnashing their teeth because the upper ranks of management are dominated by men. There is no easy answer for this. Some women can split their time successfully. Some can't. There should be no shaming of those who choose not to remain in the corporate ranks.
