A revolutionary, real-world solution to the problem of unpaid, invisible work that women have shouldered for too long - from the woman tapped by Reese Witherspoon's Hello Sunshine as the expert on this topic.
Eve Rodsky is changing society one relationship at a time, by coming up with a 21st century solution to an age-old problem: women shouldering the brunt of domestic responsibilities, regardless of whether they work outside the home. The unequal emotional labour and 'invisible work' in a relationship is a hot-button issue, but no one has offered a real solution to this dilemma, until now.
Rodsky surveyed more than 500 couples to figure out WHAT the invisible work in a family actually is and HOW to get it done effectively - in a way that makes relationships even stronger. FAIR PLAY identifies the 100 main tasks in any relationship and family, and then divides those tasks fairly (not necessarily equally!) so that both parties contribute their fair share.
If we don't learn to rebalance our home life and reclaim our 'unicorn time' (aka, our space to develop the skills and passions that keep us vibrant), then we risk losing our right to be interesting, not just to our partner, but to ourselves.
Part how-to guide for couples, part modern relationship manifesto, FAIR PLAY offers an innovative system with a completely original lexicon to discuss how relationships actually work ... and how we can make them work better.
Eve Rodsky received her B.A. in economics and anthropology from the University of Michigan, and her J.D. from Harvard Law School. After working in foundation management at J.P. Morgan, she founded the
Philanthropy Advisory Group to advise families and charitable foundations on best practices for their work. She created the Fair Play system in response to her own need to juggle work and family life when she realized that she could apply her expertise in family mediation, strategy, and organizational management to a problem closer to home. Over the last decade, she has tested Fair Play with more than 500 families all around the US and the world. Rodsky was born and raised by a single mum in New York City and now lives in Los
Angeles with her husband and their three children. Fair Play is her first book.
