NEW YORK, N.Y. - A first-person lament by a former State Department official on "Why Women Still Can't Have It All" has attracted more visits to The Atlantic magazine website in a 24-hour period than any story the site has ever published.

The piece by Anne-Marie Slaughter described her struggles balancing a high-powered career with raising her two sons.

Clicks were "approaching 450,000 uniques," magazine spokeswoman Natalie Raabe said Friday, citing data from Omniture.

The piece also had more than 75,000 Facebook recommendations, not counting the links posted on individual facebook pages, where friends engaged in debate about work-life balance.

"I knew this was going to resonate," said Slaughter in a phone interview, but "I did not expect it to go viral quite this fast."
