Perhaps. But there are millions of women in the upper middle class and the culture they create and reflect affects everyone. Besides, Slaughter deserves some credit for honesty. As she recounts in the piece, when she mentioned to a friend that she was considering writing that women can't have...

The only woman in the dept was a "kitch" for asking them to knock it off and then going to the sup when it just got worse. I also KNOW that I spent many an hour listening to them talk about hunting, fishing, golf, football and on and on and on. They would clock in 15 min early and then stand around yakking while the "secretary's" got the day started. Inappropriate workplace actions are NOT limited to women. It's interesting to me though, that to you it's the "women" who should stay at home not the sluff offs.
Anne-Marie Slaughter's eye-catching Atlantic article, "Why Women Still Can't Have It All," is being greeted with a certain reverse snobbery. We've been reminded that the choices and challenges of women with advanced degrees are hardly typical and not the sort of thing that should divert us from the problems of the middle class.
