This Fortune article describes some of the strategies and tactics that executive women share with each other in order to survive -- and thrive.  

We especially liked these 3 time management tips:

1. Don't offer your direct reports too much information...just state "I have a conflict." End of story.

2. Cook 2-3 meals on Sunday for the week.

3. Use hotel room service to freeze breast milk while traveling for work.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?
