"There's a tension between being an engaged parent and being an alpha. Is that an injustice? I think that's just life," says Kay Hymowitz, commenting on her article, "The Plight of the Alpha Female" in the Autumn 2012 edition of City Journal.

As women increasingly become the breadwinners in society, the highest ranks of government and private enterprise remain dominated by men. Is this unfair? While many feminists point to this gender gap as evidence of discrimination, Hymowitz takes a hard look at the data, and finds that most women are choosing family over career. Her insight poses a challenge to traditional feminist notions of gender roles, pay equity, and the proper role of government in the workplace.

Kay sat down to talk with ReasonTV's Kennedy about the benefits of 21st century parenting, why women often excel in family unfriendly workplaces, and more.

About 9:25 minutes.
