Mom, The Multi-Tasker:

A New York Times editor got a virtual earful when he sent several questions about women and work to the readers of the web site Mama Source [1], including whether women with small children should start a business and whether women have "intrinsic qualities that give them a competitive edge over men." Most of the women who responded to his questions said that women are excellent multi-taskers. "I challenge any man to talk on the phone, send a fax, reply to an e-mail, change a diaper, get a toddler a snack, monitor what your school-age children are watching on TV and add to the grocery list – all at the same time," one of the respondents said.
