Annabel Crabb & The Wife Drought

Wednesday 15 October 6.30pm, Institute of Architects, 3 Manning Street, Potts Point

$15 per person.  Bookings essential.  Book via Eventbrite or call 9331 6642

Join us when Australia's favourite journalist talks about why women need wives and men need lives.

"I need a wife".  It's a common joke amongst women juggling work and family, but it's a joke that's wearing thin.  But then, why is the work and family debate always about women?  Why don't men get the same flexibility that women do?  

The Wife Drought is a call for a ceasefire in the gender wars and a thoughtful, engaging catalyst for a conversation that's long overdue.

Don't miss Annabel talking about these issues and her intriguing research about the attitudes that pulse beneath the surface of egalitarian Australia.
