Women's Work: Fair Play - Redistributing the Housework Cards with Eve Rodsky

Aug 5, 2022 | Episode 496 | 47.14
Eve first joined me on the podcast back in episode #312 where she discussed her book Fair Play: A Game-Changing Solution for When You Have Too Much to Do (and More Life to Live). I highly recommend going back and listening to that episode so you have a foundational understanding of the concept of Fair Play. Since she was here last time, she has released the Fair Play Documentary. In this episode, Eve and I discuss the invisible work being done at home and how society has tried to erase the gender division of labor in the home.

The Secret History of Home Economics Part 2 (1940 - Now)

Jul 22, 2022 | Episode 494 | 23:15
This is the third episode is a series on Home Economics and the book The Secret History of Home Economics by Danielle Dreilinger. In this episode, we pick up the timeline at World War II. The ending of the war brought a change with fewer women in the workforce and fewer women going to college. Two-thirds of women were married by the time they reached age 24. Despite new technology, in the 1950s, these women were still spending 52 hours a week on housework. At this time the American Home Economics Association defined Home Economics as being concerned with strengthening family life.

The Secret History of Home Economics Part 1 (1800-1940)

Jul 15, 2022 | Episode 493 | 31:02
In this episode, I'm diving into the content of The Secret History of Home Economics by Danielle Dreilinger. This is a meaty book and a fascinating read!  Home Economics was the path that was created for women to enter college and earn college degrees. Women like Catherine Beecher, Ellen Swallow, and Margaret Murray Washington led the way in the field. Home Economics at that time was about an ideal home life that was unhampered by tradition and which utilized modern science for better productivity. It was about the study of food properties and diets as well as experiments with bacteria, standardization of clothing measurements, and so much more.
