Publisher's Summary

A groundbreaking exploration of feminism's most buzzy topic. 

No more grin and bear it: how and why we all need to reset the domestic balance. 

Gemma Hartley is a mother and journalist on a mission: to throw fresh light on the hidden burden of 'emotional labour' (washing, wiping, worrying, soothing, shopping, preparing, planning, cooking, caring) and find out why it is that the bulk of these thankless, hugely time-consuming and frustrating jobs fall to women. 

Gemma's article 'Women Aren't Nags; We're Just Fed Up' was shared by millions of readers, giving voice to a huge number of women whose frustration and anger is mixed with incredulity. Is this really where we're at 50 years postfeminism? Gemma's quest to get to the bottom of the problem and find out how to solve it will take you deep into your own subconscious bias and sees her challenging the foundations of her own marriage to try to forge a better, more balanced way to live. 

Fed Up puts forward a thought-provoking, honest and impassioned case that any woman in a relationship should take an unflinching look at her own home life and ask, 'How could we do this better?' The answer might just save your sanity and your relationship.
