(to) have it all

Here's a nice expression that was popularized by the women's liberation movement of the 1960's and 1970's. 

Today's headline is this:

If Marissa Mayer can 'have it all,' can you?


Here's another headline with a slightly different take on the matter:

Women (and Men) Can Have It All

And this:


Women Can't Have It All Because
Nobody Can Have It All


But the expression doesn't only refer to women (and men).  See our next headline:

Why America Can't Have It All

Reading these articles, what do you think that "having it all" means? 

With reference to women, can a woman "have it all"?

Can a man "have it all"? 

Can America "have it all"?

And who defines what "having it all" means?
