Description
Information
Husbands and wives may say they are committed to equality. Yet, whether employed or not, wives still perform an astonishing share of the physical, emotional and organisational labour in marriage - everything from housework to "sex work". Wifework is a shorthand for this relentless routine of husband maintenance.

Women today initiate three-quarters of all divorces. Wifework, Maushart argues, lies at the core of their disillusionment. If family life is worth saving, wifework will have to go. And that means rewriting the job description to make marriage more equitable, less exhausting and more fun for women.

In this compulsively readable book, Susan Maushart documents the wifework dilemma and explores its consequences for all the stakeholders, men, women and children alike.
