The myth of perfection

Debora Spar, president of Barnard College, urges women to recognize that the quest for perfection is a myth.

In an article in the October 1 & 8 issue of Newsweek, Spar writes that one of the reasons women are unhappy is “fear that their kids don’t practice piano at least two hours a day, their closets are a mess and the brownies they brought to the bake sale weren’t entirely gluten-free.

“It’s madness. Let me be clear,” she emphasizes. “If women want to have both families and jobs; if they want, even, to have fast-paced jobs without children or fast-paced children without jobs, something has to give.”
