Emotional Labor - Why A Woman's Work is Never Done and What To Do About It: Virtual
Join Dr. Regina Lark for a rich discussion centered around her new book "Emotional Labor: Why A Woman’s Work is Never Done and What To Do About It".
Emotional labor is the invisible, unnoticed, unwaged, unwritten, undervalued work women do at home and in the paid workforce. It is the thinking about what’s coming up, what needs to happen, how to look into the future to anticipate birthdays, school permissions slips, family meals, holiday dinners, do we have enough toilet paper, how come we don’t have any more ketchup? Granted, all of these little tasks are each one of them easy to do but also supremely important to the functioning of a well-ordered home and to family happiness. The tasks are like part of the clothing that women wear. It falls onto her shoulders like a giant set of shoulder pads.
Regina Lark’s Emotional Labor: Why A Woman’s Work is Never Done and What To Do About It explores historical and contemporary themes for why the work is called, “women’s work” and provides three ways we can begin to disrupt the narrative.
This session is open to anyone, especially those who feel as if they carry the weight of the emotional labor in your family, relationships, or workplace.
