Men are actively excluded from this discussion about what for a couple should really be a team effort. Slaughter herself admits no one's more important than us husbands in assuring women even have a shot at "getting it all" but all this decision making has been going on in our absence so far. Men being excluded raises concern that women being entitled to "have it all" means they'll get it at the expense of men being tasked with having to give it to them. Women under 30 now earn 8% more than men do. At what point do men get to join the discussion? Being only allowed to discuss rights for one gender and responsibility for another is just the pendulum of inequality swinging the other way. Inequality is not the way to happiness for either gender IMHO.
