being tired, burned out on busy. Present Over Perfect is an invitation to this journey

before you began proving and earning for your worth.

By Anne-Marie Slaughter

two young sons encouraged her to pursue the job. Anne-Marie Slaughter
returns with her vision for what true equality between men and women really
