1. What is “woman’s work” and why is it never done?
The phrase “A woman’s work is never done” is 147 years old, and the concept is universal. Say “a woman’s work” and everyone knows you mean. This talk provides the historical underpinning for “a woman’s work” with strategies to disrupt the narrative.
2. The Emotional Labor Cupcake
You’re asked to bake cupcakes for your child’s school project. But there’s clearly more to baking than mixing up a batch – it’s planning, processing, sequencing the steps – from idea, to oven, to school – and also involving your child! This talk explores reasons for looking at all functions and tasks of the household through the lens of project management and delegation.
3. Nag, Bitch, Shrew: The Emotional Labor of the Perpetual Ask
If you asked once, you’ve asked 100 times, and now… you’re a nag. Fascinating though it may be, that women “put downs” often come in the form of an animal, what is it about “the ask” that turns “please wash your cup” into a full-blown argument? This talk suggests that a woman’s work is never done because others in the household aren’t doing their share, and why listening and noticing are important skills everyone in the home could adopt as their own.
4. “I had no idea it would be so much work!”: The Emotional Labor Lifecyle
What if you had a template that would highlight ALL the amazing amount of labor that goes into developing our relationship to emotional labor? This talk introduces the concept of the “emotional labor lifecycle” to help young couples and established families identify, navigate, and delegate the work that comes up as you move forward with life.
5. Uplift and elevate: Reimagining the Sisterhood
In the 1960s Betty Friedan called it “the problem with no name.” Today, we call it “emotional labor.” Women’s bodies and brains are being crushed under its weight, and we think we’re the only ones experiencing the heaviness of it all. This talk makes the case for reimagining our sisterhood and why developing these relationships can be so damn powerful.
