Anne-Marie Slaughter's 2012 piece "Why Women Still Can't Have it All," is one of the most widely-read articles in The Atlantic's history. In her new book, "Unfinished Business," Slaughter continues the conversation about work-life balance but with a different approach. This time around Slaughter de-emphasizes gender and instead focuses on policies that promote caregiving. We'll talk to Slaughter about how the response to her popular article changed her thinking and what she sees as the way forward for working families.
