Join us when Australia's favourite journalists talk 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 and Richard talking about these issues and Annabel's intriguing research about the attitudes that pulse beneath the surface of egalitarian Australia.
