Anne-Marie Slaughter’s new book, Unfinished Business: Women, Men, Work, Family, argues that as long as work and family are considered women’s issues, women and men will never be equal and employers will continue to haemorrhage great female and increasingly male talent. To respond, we must go beyond change within our current structures. We must transform gender roles for men as much as for women, and reinvent the workplace to focus on results, customized careers, and on-demand provision of everything.
