"I think it’s a false trade-off to say quality time versus quantity – you have to have both. So if you have long work hours like I did, how do you get rid of things in your life you don’t need in order to put that extra time into your children? I always supported the women I worked with having time off to go to parent- teacher conferences and doctors’ appointments or bringing their infants into the office. I’m a huge supporter of on-site child care.
You need much more sensitivity in the workplace to the challenges young women go through in trying to do two very difficult jobs well."
