Katie Couric describes the overwhelming balancing act performed by working mothers and where change must come.

Katie Couric is an award-winning journalist and TV personality whose time in the storied anchor chair of the CBS Evening News made her the first woman to serve as sole anchor of a network evening news program. By the time she made her major network debut as NBC's Deputy Pentagon Correspondent in 1989, Couric had already won an Associated Press award and an Emmy. In 1991, she started what would become a 15-year run on Today, and has remained at the very pinnacle of American broadcast journalism for over two decades. When she moved to CBS in 2006, she juggled her nightly duties with superb contributions to 60 Minutes and award-winning work on CBS Reports.Through all of this, she has fought to raise awareness of the disease that claimed her husband Jay Monahan at the age of 42 and left her a single parent of two. The next chapter is already underway: Couric is serving as a Special Correspondent at ABC News and preparing a new daytime talk show set to debut in September 2012.
