Got a question for Leslie Morgan Steiner?

The Blogosphere's been buzzing lately with talk about Leslie Morgan Steiner, her new book "Mommy Wars," and her new blog at the Washington Post "On Balance."

Long story short blog entry, Steiner's decision to give her book such an incendiary title is annoying. Is it her point that stay at home moms and working moms have good reason to duke it out and should duke it out? I believe we should be working towards pooling our energies, making love not war. Better and more available childcare, more positive attitudes in the workplace towards working mothers in the form of career-oriented part time jobs: these things would benefit all women, all mothers, and all families. Can't we all just get along?

I am going to a MotherTalk event tonight where Steiner will be in attendance. If you live in the Bay Area and would like to attend, let me know and I'll forward you the evite. If you don't, but you have a question for Steiner that you would like me to pose, leave it in comments.

Tonight's event is a discussion and not an opportunity to throw juice boxes at the woman, but I for one am curious to know if she truly believes we are at war or if she just understands that using incendiary language helps create PR and sell books.

Tune in tomorrow for more live coverage from the frontline.
