This week, we're covering a hot topic: THE MENTAL LOAD, Y'ALL!
We're sharing and reviewing the viral Harper's Bazaar article Women Aren't Nags - We're Just Fed Up: Emotional Labor Is the Unpaid Job Men Still Don't Understand by Gemma Hartley.
Our heads basically exploded when we first read it. In a good way.
The article was published in Harpers Bazaar on September 27, 2017. You can read the full mental load article here.
We also share some figures from the bureau of labor statistics representing the average amount of time per day men and women spend on household activities. If you'd like to see those graphics, you can check them out here.
For other articles on the mental load, check out this brilliant comic from The Guardian and this article from a heteronormative man's perspective.
This is a short, but hopefully impactful, episode this week.
All the abundance to you!
