"I have come to believe smaller is better," Mr. Rodriguez, 57, said. He wasn't really talking about clothes. He was talking about work/life balance.

However, despite being ambitious, career-focused, and progressing at work, women continue to struggle with the competing demands of pursuing professional careers and raising families (Hewlett, 2002; Slaughter, 2012). Women's careers continue to diverge from those of men, with women much more likely to have periods of part-time work or being out of the workforce than their male counterparts.

Do Nobel Prize laureates ever grocery shop? Does a distinguished professor, with over 40,000 citations to his works, find time to chat with his spouse? Does a renowned female scientist struggle with childcare arrangements while traveling around the country giving scientific lectures almost every other week?
