Even Among Harvard Graduates, Women Fall Short of Their Work Expectations | Ideas of interest for UST women leaders | Scoop.it

From the New York TImes: "Both sexes have ambitious goals for their career and family life, a study finds, but entrenched factors seem to hold many women back."

Ann Johnson's insight:

Stalled advancement in women's careers is traced to "mis-matched expectations" between husband and wife as well as inflexible workplaces. Hoping this puts to rest the old belief that gaps are due to women voluntarily opting out of work to raise kids.

A decade later, my own students were doing the same thing."
