What I'm Reading: “How Not to Hate Your Husband After Kids”

Last month I wrote about the invisible workload that women carry and how I personally try to counteract it, which prompted a slew of messages from friends sharing their stories and perspectives. One of these friends, a great friend of mine from high school and new mom of a perfect baby boy, sent me a recommendation to check out a book she was reading: Jancee Dunn’s How Not to Hate Your Husband After Kids. While I can confidently say that I have never hated my husband, my baby is only 18 months– there is still plenty of time for resentment to fester. In the spirit of research, I dove right in, and I’m glad that I did. 

What I’m Reading: We Should All Be Feminists

There it is again, that word—feminist. In Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s 2012 TEDx talk, adapted to a published essay in 2014, she relays her early justifications of the term. “At one point, I was a happy African feminist who does not hate men and likes lip gloss and who wears high heels for herself and not for men,” she says. “That word is so heavy with baggage—negative baggage.”

What I’m Watching: Ocean’s 8

Here are the facts:

  1. Ocean’s 8 has a star-studded, female-focused cast.

  2. Ocean’s 8 hit #1 at the box office, bringing in $41.5 million domestically opening weekend.

Most of the other things you will read about the film are based on opinion, and so is everything else I am about to say.
