內容簡介


為現代女性勇敢發聲,擺脫情緒勞動,開拓女性的未來之路

美國記者Gemma Hartley以大膽言論探討女性長期承受無薪及不被重視的工作環境,迫切為女性創造更美好的願景

 

從白天到黑夜,女性必須參與及在乎他人的需求。在兩性關係中,總是女性先發起尷尬的溝通;在職場,我們以溫柔的語調,耐心解釋所有細節;而身處這個世界,女性必須小心翼翼保護自身安全。無論我們內心的意願與否,女性總是扮演隱形的角色,而且永遠沒有下班的一天。也難怪女人們肩上的負擔過重、疲累而且越來越無法忍受一切。

美國記者Gemma Hartley發起一篇文章《女人不是嘮叨─我們只是受夠了》,在網路上造成百萬讀者轉發,真實地為眾多女性發表內心最沉痛的聲音。而本書則是將女性日常的挫敗向外延伸,以傳達各個工作領域中不被重視的情緒勞動,是如何加劇性別不平等、機會受限,以及對生活品質產生不利影響。

Hartley不僅要探討問題的根本,她以細緻入微的觀察及見解,剖析情緒勞動不只是女性需要克服的問題,還需要破除性別隔閡,學習引導及建立一個更美好及平等的世界。對於所有厭倦一切的女性,這將是一本令人驚豔、充滿智慧及善解人意的最佳選擇。

 

From Gemma Hartley, the journalist who ignited a national conversation on emotional labor, comes Fed Up, a bold dive into the unpaid, invisible work women have shouldered for too long—and an impassioned vision for creating a better future for us all.

Day in, day out, women anticipate and manage the needs of others. In relationships, we initiate the hard conversations. At home, we shoulder the mental load required to keep our households running. At work, we moderate our tone, explaining patiently and speaking softly. In the world, we step gingerly to keep ourselves safe. We do this largely invisible, draining work whether we want to or not—and we never clock out. No wonder women everywhere are overtaxed, exhausted, and simply fed up.

In her ultra-viral article “Women Aren’t Nags—We’re Just Fed Up,” shared by millions of readers, Gemma Hartley gave much-needed voice to the frustration and anger experienced by countless women. Now, in Fed Up, Hartley expands outward from the everyday frustrations of performing thankless emotional labor to illuminate how the expectation to do this work in all arenas—private and public—fuels gender inequality, limits our opportunities, steals our time, and adversely affects the quality of our lives.

More than just name the problem, though, Hartley teases apart the cultural messaging that has led us here and asks how we can shift the load. Rejecting easy solutions that don’t ultimately move the needle, Hartley offers a nuanced, insightful guide to striking real balance, for true partnership in every aspect of our lives. Reframing emotional labor not as a problem to be overcome, but as a genderless virtue men and women can all learn to channel in our quest to make a better, more egalitarian world, Fed Up is surprising, intelligent, and empathetic essential reading for every woman who has had enough with feeling fed up.
