Gemma Hartley is the author of the new book Fed Up: Emotional Labor, Women, and the Way Forward. The book was inspired by a viral article that Gemma wrote for Harper’s Bazaar called “Women Aren’t Nags - We’re just fed up.” It was read more than 2 billion times, so clearly it struck a cord and it definitely resonated with me. In our conversation Gemma pulls from her own life experiences as a mother and wife that I think we’ll find all-too familiar. We discuss how she defines emotional labor, how women often find themselves bearing the brunt of it...And what is the way forward to living a fuller and more satisfying life?
