Do you feel like you are drowning under a list of “to-dos” and the invisible workload that so often falls on the shoulders of women?

Eve Rodsky is a wife, mother, a Harvard graduate, and the author of Fair Play, a book that is not only shining a light on the issue of women’s unpaid labor, but also provides actionable steps to more equitably divvy up domestic responsibilities.

In this episode, Eve shares the moment of her personal reckoning and the catalyst that eventually led to Fair Play being born, how unpaid labor is an issue that transcends race, class, and even sexual identity, and reminds us that it’s not a badge of honor to have it all by doing it all.

We also discuss steps to building more equity with your partner when it comes to household responsibility, and why change starts with each of us unlearning every message about our role and value that we have been given throughout our lives.
