"Elle" Article Critiques Mommy-Centrism in the Workplace

Writer (and mother) Nancy Hass has published an excellent piece in the March 2009 edition of "Elle" magazine taking to task women who "blather on" about their offspring in the workplace. She asks an important question: What's making mothers with highly successful careers feel compelled to crow about their parental duties to the entire office? She also argues against viewing motherhood as a personal achievement, a portion of the article that CF female readers will no doubt find heartening.
