The Daily Gripe

Margaret Wente says women just naturally don't want careers and most of us quit our jobs to raise babies because we want to. Well, some of us do, but this article here lacks nuance and careful consideration. Wente says the lack of women in senior positions isn't at all due to a lack of daycare (onsite daycare might be nice if you have to work long hours at a law firm while breast-feeding, I would think), or sexism, or anything else. Someone needs to fire this idiot! I've worked at some pretty high pressure law firms, and while I can't speak for other fields, in law, the mommy track is one hundred per cent real!
