“Socially, we treat domestic labor as if it’s miniscule. We underpay it or leave it unpaid, and it comes with no power or prestige to be doing those jobs. Because it’s so invisible, often the stay at home parent will absorb tasks until they are overwhelmed.” – Laura Danger


Laura Danger is one of my favorite people to follow on Instagram (@thatdarnchat). Her whole commentary on emotional labor and learned or weaponized incompetence is so refreshing and on point. She breaks down the negative stereotypes of men and women in society in an easy-to-understand way, too. 

I invited Laura on the show to chat more about creating equity at home, and she shares some great insights and solutions in this conversation. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed having it.
