I agree wholeheartedly with the sentiment to stop arguing about the hard choices that women and men have to make, and start focusing on solutions to help break down barriers so that these hard choices are no longer necessary. As the article pointed out, as a society, we've made some changes in this arena but the problem still remains.

It is unfortunate that 50 years later, as a woman, I still do not feel like I can be successful in a career AND as a mother. It seems that one will have to sacrifice so the other can succeed. And difficult decisions, that do not accurately reflect my preference, will have to be made.

I still believe that attitude and relationship barriers exist and will be difficult to eliminate. It will take a shift and focus and an increase in the conversation regarding this issue, in order to break down the structural barriers referenced and help adjust these attitudes.

I like this article in what it stands for, women are just as hardworking as men, if not harder working. Not only do when want to work but they also are depended on to keep the house up and be a mother to children who also need attention and loving.
I agree that we need to look for solutions to this gender in equality, we see it every where, relationships, work force, society, etc.
yes the problem is still there, and will it always be? probably to some extent yes but we need to do something about these hard choices and these inequalities.
