This week, Eve Rodsky - author of domestic partnership bible, Fair Play - joins Catt in her bedroom for a pre-quarantine deep dive into sharing the workload at home.Before getting into the details of her game-changing book, Eve opens up about her early life -- from being raised by a single mom in the Lower East Side of New York, to graduating from Harvard with a law degree and moving on to build an incredibly successful legal career.
But even with all these wins in her professional life, Eve's home dynamic was flailing. She realized there needed to be a dramatic change if her marriage was going to survive. So, after a life-changing "blueberry moment" (don't worry, she explains), she crowd-sourced hundreds of men and women about their division of labor and went to work building a roadmap for revival.
Also in this episode, Catt shares some insight on her Vanity Fair essay about related issues (if you haven't read it yet, go check it out)! https://www.vanityfair.com/style/2018/04/catt-sadler-mom-tax-equal-pay

Eve Rodsky is going to save relationships around the world. The lawyer, mother, and New York Times best selling author of FAIR PLAY is opening up the conversation about responsibilities in the household. We fight so hard for equality in the work place yet there seems to be a lot of uneven weight of life's obligations at home. Eve did years of research to turn her discoveries in to a book and card game that will help you level out the load. Make sure to listen, as we find out that “to have it all, we don’t have to do it all."
