Anne-Marie Slaughter. Indra Nooyi. Arlie Russell Hochschild. Sheryl Sandberg. And now, joining the fray of working women who know all about balancing family and career, the venerable regular working mom Kim Kardashian who — finally! — has weighed in on the age-old question of whether women can really Have It All.
Kardashian komments came during an interview with CNBC, where she was shilling a line of baby klothes. Said the sex tape star-cum-reality TV personality,
I mean, I think that's just not really like a positive outlook and for me, like my mom kind of taught us girls that we could have it all. You know, she works hard. She taught us that if you work hard, it's just all about prioritizing and I think that, yeah, it could get tough and after you have a baby, there are so many times when I just didn't want to get up and work on something and I just wanted to be home with my baby, but, you know, for me, and I think I can speak for my sisters, it makes us feel good when we are out working and we can provide something for our friends and products that, you know, we can't find that we really want. And it just makes you feel productive. So if anyone really feels like they can't do it all, I feel like it's a little bit discouraging to say that, even if I couldn't and it wasn't possible, I would try. And I would, you know, try my best to do it all.
Consider that debate good and settled, then.
