Invisible Labor in Families: A Conversation With Eve Rodsky About “Fair Play”

Date: Tuesday, March 28, 2023 @ 1 pm ET
Speaker: Eve Rodsky, '98
Eve Rodsky

In celebration of Women’s History Month, we invite you to discuss invisible labor within families with New York Times bestselling author Eve Rodsky, ’98. Rather than simply identifying the issue of unequal division of labor, join us to learn hands-on practical solutions for families and working parents with the author of “Fair Play: A Game-Changing Solution for When You Have Too Much to Do (and More Life to Live).”

“Fair Play” provides a time- and anxiety-saving system that offers couples a completely new way to divvy up domestic responsibilities. In writing her book, Rodsky interviewed more than 500 men and women from all walks of life to figure out what the invisible work in a family actually entails and how to get it all done efficiently. The results dynamically shift the conversation away from simply saying the issue of unequal labor exists to providing solutions, such as the book’s four easy-to-follow rules, 100 household tasks, and even a figurative card game you can play with your partner. “Winning” this game means rebalancing your home (and, as a result, your work) life, reigniting your relationship with your significant other, and reclaiming your “Unicorn Space” — as in, the active pursuit to develop the skills and passions that keep you interested and interesting both personally and professionally.

We invite you to read “Fair Play” and participate in the book club component of this program. You can sign up for the book club, which will be hosted on LinkedIn, when registering. As a special offer to Alumni Association members, the first 100 members have the option to receive a free copy of “Fair Play” when enrolling in the book club. Copies of “Fair Play” can be purchased here.

Eve Rodsky transformed a “blueberries breakdown” into a catalyst for social change when she applied her Harvard-trained background in organizational management to ask the simple yet profound question: What would happen if we treated our homes as our most important organizations? Her New York Times bestselling book and Reese’s Book Club Pick, “Fair Play: A Game-Changing Solution for When You Have Too Much to Do (and More Life to Live),” has elevated the cultural conversation about the value of unpaid labor and care with a gamified life-management system that helps partners rebalance their domestic workload and reimagine their relationship.

In her highly anticipated follow-up, “Find Your Unicorn Space: Reclaim Your Creative Life in a Too-Busy World,” Rodsky explores the cross-section between the science of creativity, productivity, and resilience. Described as the “antidote to physical, mental, and emotional burnout,” Rodsky aims to inspire a new narrative around the equality of time and the individual right to personal time choice that influences sustainable and lasting change on a policy level. Rodsky’s work is backed by Hello Sunshine, Reese Witherspoon’s media company whose mission is to change the narrative for women through storytelling.

Rodsky was born and raised by a single mom in New York City and now lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Seth, and their three children.
