A new voice in comics is incisive, funny, and fiercely feminist.´´The mental load. It´s incessant, gnawing, exhausting, and disproportionately falls to women. You know the scene - you´re making dinner, calling the plumber/doctor/mechanic, checking homework and answering work emails - at the same time. All the while, you are being peppered with questions by your nearest and dearest ´where are my shoes?, ´do we have any cheese?...´´´ -Australian Broadcasting Corp on Emma´s comicIn her first book of comic strips, Emma reflects on social and feminist issues by means of simple line drawings, dissecting the mental load, ie all that invisible and unpaid organizing, list-making and planning women do to manage their lives, and the lives of their family members. Most of us carry some form of mental load - about our work, household responsibilities, financial obligations and personal life; but what makes up that burden and how it´s distributed within households and understood in offices is not always equal or fair. In her strips Emma deals with themes ranging from maternity leave (it is not a vacation!), domestic violence, the clitoris, the violence of the medical world on women during childbirth, and other feminist issues, and she does so in a straightforward way that is both hilarious and deadly serious. If you´re not laughing, you´re probably crying in recognition. Emma´s comics also address the everyday outrages and absurdities of immigrant rights, income equality, and police violence.Emma has over 300,000 followers on Facebook, her comics have been shared 215,000 times, and have elicited comments from 21,000 internet users. An article about her in the French magazine L´Express drew 1.8 million views - a record since the site was created. And her comic has just been picked up by The Guardian.

Fed Up: Emotional Labor, Women, and the Way For...

A rousing call to arms, packed with surprising insights, that explores how carrying ´´the mental load´´ - the thankless day-to-day anticipating of needs and solving of problems large and small - is adversely affecting women’s lives and feeding gender inequality, and shows the way forward for better balancing our lives.Launching a heated national conversation with her viral article ´´Women Aren’t Nags; We’re Just Fed Up´´ - viewed more than two billion times - journalist Gemma Hartley gave voice to the frustration and anger of countless women putting in the hidden, underappreciated, and absolutely draining mental work that consists of keeping everyone in their lives comfortable and happy. Bringing long-overdue awareness to the daunting reality of emotional labor in our lives, Hartley defines the largely invisible but demanding, time-consuming, and exhausting ´´worry work´´ that falls disproportionately and unfairly on all women - no matter their economic class or level of education.Synthesizing a wide variety of sources - history, sociology, economics, psychology, philosophy, and anthropology - Hartley makes the invisible visible, unveiling the surprising shapes emotional labor takes at work, at home, in relationships, and in parenting. With on-the-ground reporting, identifiable personal stories, and interviews from around the world, this feminist manifesto will empower women to transform their inner dialogue and give all women the emotional fortitude and courage to ask for what we most want - without shame, without guilt, and without the emotional baggage.Beyond naming the problem, Fed Up offers practical advice and solutions for teaching both men and women how to wield emotional labor to live more full and satisfying lives. Hartley helps us to see emotional labor not as a problem to be overcome, but as a genderless virtue we can all learn to channel in our quest to make a better, more egalitarian world for ourselves and most im 1.
