    Good conversation. Ms. Ashburn said we need to figure out a way to keep women in "power positions", the implication being that employment policies are not conducive to getting and keeping women in powerful positions. I think it is very clear that Ms. Slaughter made the choice to give up her power position in favor of her teaching job not because she COULDN'T manage her Gov't job, but because she couldn't manage BOTH jobs AND have a satisfactory family life. The failing here was of her own making not of employment policies. She could easily have given up her teaching position and kept her high profile "power" position. It was her very personal decision that she would not sacrifice her life-satisfaction for the "women's advancement" movement.
