HOUSEWIFE Why Women Still Do It All and What to Do Instead

by | Read by Lyssa Browne

Contemporary Culture • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Narrator Lyssa Browne guides listeners through this audiobook on the history and myths that surround the concept of the housewife in the U.S. From the idealized idea of the 1950s housewife to the contemporary woman who is expected to do it all with no help, this audiobook explores how expectations of women have changed and what can be done to create a more egalitarian society. Browne delivers an informative, sarcastic, and enjoyable performance of this audiobook. She puts forth the facts and figures about parenting and homemaking in the United States in a way that keeps one's attention, even when the information makes one furious to hear.
