The Hidden Work: Regina Lark, Ph.D. on Emotional Labor and Gender Equity Motherhood Meets Medicine

    • Kids & Family

Have you ever heard of the “hidden work” of women? Perhaps you’ve felt that hidden work? So many of us equate hidden work with the labors of running a household, but that’s not where it stops. The true hidden work is steeped in the emotional labor women take on as they manage a household and all that that entails. Join me as I chat with Regina Lark, Ph.D. about the true cost of emotional labor and what we can do to create more equitable households. 
Regina Lark is an entrepreneur, business owner, author, speaker, and all-around cool woman. She completed a Ph.D. in U.S. Women's History, and lives in Long Beach, CA.
In today’s episode, we will be talking about women’s work and emotional labor. We will chat about how women’s work has been undervalued and marginalized throughout history and what the consequences have been. 
In this episode, we discuss: 
What emotional labor and women’s work is
Why women’s work never done 
How to identify your own brand of emotional labor and ways to shift household responsibilities
The steps you can take to create a more equitable household
