We still have a long way to go.

Caolionn O'Connell, a Caltech postdoc in physics, wrote a post yesterday explaining how worried she is about trying to juggle a family with her career. It actually made me feel pretty sad. Feminism, for all that it has given us, still hasn't been able to make it easy to raise a family and have a successful career at the same time.
I hope that someday this is resolved, this is one of the big problems in western society and I don't think it gets enough emphasis.
