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 comic In 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. Many women will recognize themselves in THE MENTAL LOAD, which is sure to stir a wide ranging, important debate on what it really means to be a woman today.

'Emma’s strong, smart, clear-eyed book gives us the language (and the urgent desire) to shout from the rooftops about the maddening, unacknowledged injustices women face every day. It validates all the thoughts I️ have about being a woman and didn't have words for.' -- Liana Finck, author of  Passing for Human: A Graphic Memoir 'The Mental Load, a feminist comic by Emma, takes readers on a journey of awakening that is at once delightfully whimsical and frustratingly serious. The graphic stories take aim at the way women’s unpaid caregiving and labor is invisible, undervalued and expected at home, and how it shapes and limits their experiences and career trajectories at work. An eye-opening gem.'                -- Brigid Schulte, award-winning journalist, author of the  New York Times bestselling  Overwhelmed: Work, Love & Play when No One has the Time, and director of The Better Life Lab at New America “Every activist is an alchemist at heart, transforming the familiar into the political. Emma does it by applying forensic objectivity to the everyday, to create visual essays which are transformative agents of change.' -- Jacky Fleming, author of  The Trouble With Women 'Manages to blend the personal and the political with precise, honest insights. . . .a likely gift buy to mark feminist friendships.' -- Publishers Weekly 'The gender wars of household chores.' -- The Guardian.  'Full of fire, fun and humour, Emma is a political cartoonist for our times. Don't miss this book.'   --Laurie Penny 'Funny and relevant, this is a book to slip on all your colleagues' desks.' -- Elle 'Emma talks about the clitoris like nobody else.' -- Huffington Post 'Her comics perfectly explain the mental load that women bear in the household.'-- Marie Claire

Mommy Wars: Stay-At-Home and Career Moms Face O...

zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

With motherhood comes one of the toughest decisions of a woman's life: Stay at home or pursue a career? The dilemma not only divides mothers into hostile, defensive camps but pits individual mothers against themselves. Leslie Morgan Steiner has been there. As an executive at The Washington Post, a writer, and mother of three, she has lived and breathed every side of the 'mommy wars.' Rather than just watch the battles rage, Steiner decided to do something about it. She commissioned twenty-six outspoken mothers to write about their lives, their families, and the choices that have worked for them. The result is a frank, surprising, and utterly refreshing look at American motherhood. Ranging in age from twenty-five to seventy-two and scattered across the country from New Hampshire to California, these mothers reflect the full spectrum of lifestyle choices. Women who have been home with the kids from day one, moms who shuttle from full-time office jobs to part-time at-home work, hard-driving executives who put in seventy-hour-plus weeks: they all get a turn. The one thing these women have in common, aside from having kids, is that they're all terrific writers. Pulitzer Prize winner Jane Smiley vividly recounts how her generation stormed the American workplace-only to take refuge at home when the workplace drove them out. Lizzie McGuire creator Terri Minsky describes what it felt like to hear her kids scream 'I hope you never come back!' when she flew to L.A. to launch the show that made her career. Susan Cheever, novelist, biographer, and Newsday columnist, reports on the furious battles between the stroller pushers and the briefcase bearers on the streets of Manhattan. Lois R. Shea traded the journalistic fast track for a house in the country where she could raise her daughter in peace. Ann Misiaszek Sarnoff, chief operating officer of the Women's National Basketball Association, argues fiercely that you can combine ambition and motherhood-and have a blast in the process. Candid, engaging, by turns unflinchingly honest and painfully funny, the essays collected here offer an astonishingly intimate portrait of the state of motherhood today. Mommy Wars is a book by and for and about the real experts on motherhood and hard work: the women at home, in the office, on the job every day of their lives. Including these essays: 'Neither Here nor There' by Sandy Hingston 'The Mother Load' by Terri Minsky 'Sharks and Jets' by Page Evans 'Baby Battle' by Susan Cheever 'Guilty' by Dawn Drzal 'The Donna Reed Syndrome' by Lonnae O'Neal Parker 'Mother Superior' by Catherine Clifford 'Good Enough' by Beth Brophy 'Big House, Little House, Back House, Barn' by Lois R. Shea 'What Goes Unsaid' by Sydney Trent 'I Hate Everybody' by Leslie Lehr 'Before; After' by Molly Jong-Fast 'I Do Know How She Does It' by Ann Misiaszek Sarnoff 'Red Boots and Cole Haans' by Monica Buckley Price 'Working Mother, Not Guilty' by Sara Nelson 'Feminism Meets the Free Market' by Jane Smiley 'Happy' by Anne Marie Feld 'I Never Dreamed I'd Have So Many Children' by Lila Leff 'On Being a Radical Feminist Stay-at-Home Mom' by Inda Schaenen 'Being There' by Reshma Memon Yaqub 'Russian Dolls' by Veronica Chambers 'Peace and Carrots' by Carolyn Hax 'Unprotected' by Natalie Smith Parra 'Julia' by Anna Fels 'On Balance' by Jane Juska 'My Baby's Feet Are Size 13' by Iris Krasnow
