Highlights from Anne-Marie Slaughter’s South by Southwest talk

An hour before Anne-Marie Slaughter’s South by Southwest session started, people were already starting to line up for it. It’s not surprising there’s so much interest in her talk, which is based off her July 2012 Atlantic piece, “Why Women Still Can’t Have it All.”

Slaughter’s piece, which renewed debates about whether women can balance the demands of motherhood and a high-powered job, is the most-read piece in The Atlantic’s history. Slaughter, a Princton professor, has landed a related book deal.

Here’s a Storify of her talk with Jessica Coen, editor-in-chief of Jezebel.
