(OCT 8) Anne-Marie Slaughter, head of the New America Foundation and author of the much-read article “Why Women Still Can’t Have it All”, will talk about her vision of equality between men and women, and also her broader views of U.S. foreign policy culled from her previous job as Director of Policy Planning at the U.S. State Department. As President and CEO of New America, a non-partisan think tank in Washington D.C., Slaughter continues to speak and write about foreign policy, including the Iran issue, Greece’s debt and refugees – but this is underpinned by her personal journey as a working mother.

Kerstetter ’66 University Professor Emerita of Politics and International Affairs at Princeton University and the former dean of its Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. A foreign policy analyst, legal and international relations scholar, and public commentator, Slaughter was a professor at the University of Chicago Law School and Harvard Law School and is a former president of the American Society of International Law. She provides frequent commentary for both mainstream and new media and curates foreign policy news for over 80,000 followers on Twitter.Anne-Marie Slaughter’s new book Unfinished Business: Women, Men, Work, Family will be published on September 29th.
