hmmmm, the above article mentioned something i never thought of, and something im sure is a very small factor but

how many women never get opps because the people currently in power(the men) arent allowed to hire/mentor women by their wives?

prob doesnt happen much, but now that i think about it, i bet it does happen!
Do you really believe in free speech, or just in speech you agree with?

doesnt seem very fair to discriminate against people who choose to remain child free.

I don't see how it discriminates against people who are child free.  Both are on a partner track, the person who works longer hours will get there first.  Its not like they're allowing parents to stay on the track at the same schedule as those who work longer hours.

At Deloitte they allow anyone to take time off (up to 5 yrs for child care or personal growth).  It's not limited to parents.

E&Y just offers an informal venting/mentoring service for mothers.  If you want an informal workplace mentor, go find one!

Am I missing something?

Depends on the company.  They're are plenty of people who work part time at my organization for various reasons.
