Anne-Marie Slaughter is president and CEO of New America and the Bert G. Kerstetter '66 University Professor Emerita of Politics and International Affairs at Princeton University. From 2009 to 2011 she served as director of policy planning for the U.S. State Department, the first woman to do so. Prior to government, Dr. Slaughter was dean of Princeton's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs from 2002 to 2009 and the J. Sinclair Armstrong Professor of International, Foreign and Comparative Law at Harvard Law School from 1994 to 2002. She has written or edited seven books including "The Chessboard and the Web: Strategies of Connection in a Networked World" and "Unfinished Business: Women Men Work Family" and is a frequent contributor to a number of publications including The Atlantic and Financial Times. In 2012 she published "Why Women Still Can't Have It All" in The Atlantic, which quickly became the most read article in The Atlantic's history and helped renew national debate on the continued obstacles to full gender equality.
