    "My husband does a lot. He helps me out with the housework, he takes care of our children if I will be out, he will do anything I ask him to. Personally, I think I'm pretty lucky." In response to praise such as this, author Gemma Hartley asks, ?Does he do a lot compared to other men ...

    I was excited to read this book because the blog post that had led to this book being written resonated so strongly with me. I read it in a day and was not disappointed. It's not a long book but there is so much in here that matters that I'm going to take it chapter by chapter after my...

    This is a thought-provoking book on the unseen emotional labor of women, how society has shaped both men and women's acceptance of this role, and what we can do about it. While well-researched it's also not a slog, and I read it in big gulps. ...

    Necessary. I?d like to see this be required feminist reading. Gemma tackles The hard stuff here with insight and intellect. Next step: CHANGE. ...

    Worth listening to via audio. The narrator, Therese Plummer, did an amazing job and doesn't sound at all like she's reading nonfiction. They made a great choice. I liked that Hartley referenced another book I read this year called Drop the Ball by Tiffany Dufu. I thought this was g...

    It's hard to overstate how valuable I found this book. It's as if Hartley has taken everything I've struggled to articulate about what goes on in my head on a daily basis and laid it all out, not just explaining what it feels like to carry the mental and emotional load in a marriage, b...

    Hartley's in-depth analysis of emotional labor and its implications across Western society breaks ground in this discipline. Stemming from a Harper's Bazaar article ? ?Women Aren?t Nags, We?re Just Fed Up? ? the book explores how emotional labor and its distribution affects...

    Fed UP is the book every woman should definitely be reading come November 13th. Gemma Hartley takes up the stand and makes it known to women that they are not alone in this journey that is emotional labor. Gemma allows us to learn how day through day there exists a growing amount of ...

    Fed Up is both a memoir of the author's marriage and a wider cultural analysis of how society views emotional labour. Hartley writes with warmth and optimism about the frustrations caused by the organizational activities that appear invisible but make individual homes and communities r...

    This packs a punch. It's a really PERSONAL book, which was fascinating, because it's also a really universal book. It's also super practical towards the end; I think I have a better idea of how to broach the subject of emotional labor with my partner, which feels really refreshing. If ...

    Man this book sucked. I was so ready as this is a very important topic within feminism but she quoted Sheryl Sandberg in the opening chapter and I rolled my eyes. Really? I just feel more research was needed into this - it was all very personal and poorly supported when there is great ...

    I can't wait for this! Ever since I read Hartley's article 'Women Arent's Nags - We're Jut Fed Up' I have been waiting for this book. That article articulated some things that I had been feeling but didn't know how to describe and I am really looking forward to learning more about...

    http://jessjustreads.com Fed Up by Gemma Hartley is a feminist memoir and critical analysis around the concept of ?emotional labour?. This is a truly fascinating read and I?m now going to thrust this book into the hands of every female friend. Gemma explores the imbalance i...

    I was fortunate enough to receive an ARC of this book through my job, but this in no way affects my opinion of the book. Fed Up is a beautiful blend of feminist analysis mixed with Gemma Hartley?s personal experiences on the front lines of emotional labor. She defines emotional la...

    The message and overall tone of this book is spot on. The author weaves storytelling from her own life and the stories of others into each chapter, all centered around the idea that there is an invisible fabric of emotional labor that undergirds much of our world, and which has been la...

    Women today around the globe have certain expectations that people view them as. People view them as a labor source for cleaning the kitchen and doing everything in the house. While men are just suppose to sit on the couch after work. In the book, Fed Up: Emotional Labor, Women, and th...

    Eh, it's okay. It's frustratingly heterosexual and focuses far more on the dynamics within a relationship between a man and a woman ( which makes sense given the scope I suppose...). However it does show an inadequate analysis of same sex couples and doesn't move beyond acknowledging t...

    Finally carved out the time to finish this amazing book! If I could, I would pass it out to every adult I know. It is wonderfully written, and unlike other books of its type, does not man-bash, but recognizes that the way things are now (culturally) is also cheating men of being fully ...

    Glad Hartley wrote this book. First "feminist theory" book I have read. It helps me understand some of the issues and concerns facing women much better. The middle dragged, but the beginning and end were strong. Near the end Hartley stressed the importance of clear communication, not j...

    I was expecting a more researched book given what a fascinating and dense topic this is. I understand why the author would've wanted to insert her personal experience at times, but she did so to such an extent that the end result felt closer to a memoir. Ultimately, 'Fed Up' left me wi...

    Fed UP is the book every woman should definitely be reading come November 13th. Gemma Hartley takes up the stand and makes it known to women that they are not alone in this journey that is emotional labor. Gemma allows us to learn how day through day there exists a growing amount of ...

    Man this book sucked. I was so ready as this is a very important topic within feminism but she quoted Sheryl Sandberg in the opening chapter and I rolled my eyes. Really? I just feel more research was needed into this - it was all very personal and poorly supported when there is great ...

    I can't wait for this! Ever since I read Hartley's article 'Women Arent's Nags - We're Jut Fed Up' I have been waiting for this book. That article articulated some things that I had been feeling but didn't know how to describe and I am really looking forward to learning more about...

    With tremendous insight, candor, and warmth, Gemma Hartley deftly and confidently moves us through this complex conversation on women, emotional labor, and more. She gives us her all, and in doing so, we readers become better, humbler, stronger, and wiser. Countless women, as mothers, ...

    "My husband does a lot. He helps me out with the housework, he takes care of our children if I will be out, he will do anything I ask him to. Personally, I think I'm pretty lucky." In response to praise such as this, author Gemma Hartley asks, ?Does he do a lot compared to other men ...

    I was fortunate enough to receive an ARC of this book through my job, but this in no way affects my opinion of the book. Fed Up is a beautiful blend of feminist analysis mixed with Gemma Hartley?s personal experiences on the front lines of emotional labor. She defines emotional la...

    The message and overall tone of this book is spot on. The author weaves storytelling from her own life and the stories of others into each chapter, all centered around the idea that there is an invisible fabric of emotional labor that undergirds much of our world, and which has been la...

    Women today around the globe have certain expectations that people view them as. People view them as a labor source for cleaning the kitchen and doing everything in the house. While men are just suppose to sit on the couch after work. In the book, Fed Up: Emotional Labor, Women, and th...

    Eh, it's okay. It's frustratingly heterosexual and focuses far more on the dynamics within a relationship between a man and a woman ( which makes sense given the scope I suppose...). However it does show an inadequate analysis of same sex couples and doesn't move beyond acknowledging t...

    Finally carved out the time to finish this amazing book! If I could, I would pass it out to every adult I know. It is wonderfully written, and unlike other books of its type, does not man-bash, but recognizes that the way things are now (culturally) is also cheating men of being fully ...

    Glad Hartley wrote this book. First "feminist theory" book I have read. It helps me understand some of the issues and concerns facing women much better. The middle dragged, but the beginning and end were strong. Near the end Hartley stressed the importance of clear communication, not j...

    "My husband does a lot. He helps me out with the housework, he takes care of our children if I will be out, he will do anything I ask him to. Personally, I think I'm pretty lucky." In response to praise such as this, author Gemma Hartley asks, ?Does he do a lot compared to other men ...

    I was excited to read this book because the blog post that had led to this book being written resonated so strongly with me. I read it in a day and was not disappointed. It's not a long book but there is so much in here that matters that I'm going to take it chapter by chapter after my...

    This is a thought-provoking book on the unseen emotional labor of women, how society has shaped both men and women's acceptance of this role, and what we can do about it. While well-researched it's also not a slog, and I read it in big gulps. ...

    Necessary. I?d like to see this be required feminist reading. Gemma tackles The hard stuff here with insight and intellect. Next step: CHANGE. ...

    Worth listening to via audio. The narrator, Therese Plummer, did an amazing job and doesn't sound at all like she's reading nonfiction. They made a great choice. I liked that Hartley referenced another book I read this year called Drop the Ball by Tiffany Dufu. I thought this was g...

    It's hard to overstate how valuable I found this book. It's as if Hartley has taken everything I've struggled to articulate about what goes on in my head on a daily basis and laid it all out, not just explaining what it feels like to carry the mental and emotional load in a marriage, b...

    Hartley's in-depth analysis of emotional labor and its implications across Western society breaks ground in this discipline. Stemming from a Harper's Bazaar article ? ?Women Aren?t Nags, We?re Just Fed Up? ? the book explores how emotional labor and its distribution affects...

    Fed UP is the book every woman should definitely be reading come November 13th. Gemma Hartley takes up the stand and makes it known to women that they are not alone in this journey that is emotional labor. Gemma allows us to learn how day through day there exists a growing amount of ...

    Fed Up is both a memoir of the author's marriage and a wider cultural analysis of how society views emotional labour. Hartley writes with warmth and optimism about the frustrations caused by the organizational activities that appear invisible but make individual homes and communities r...

    This packs a punch. It's a really PERSONAL book, which was fascinating, because it's also a really universal book. It's also super practical towards the end; I think I have a better idea of how to broach the subject of emotional labor with my partner, which feels really refreshing. If ...

    Man this book sucked. I was so ready as this is a very important topic within feminism but she quoted Sheryl Sandberg in the opening chapter and I rolled my eyes. Really? I just feel more research was needed into this - it was all very personal and poorly supported when there is great ...

    I can't wait for this! Ever since I read Hartley's article 'Women Arent's Nags - We're Jut Fed Up' I have been waiting for this book. That article articulated some things that I had been feeling but didn't know how to describe and I am really looking forward to learning more about...

    I was expecting a more researched book given what a fascinating and dense topic this is. I understand why the author would've wanted to insert her personal experience at times, but she did so to such an extent that the end result felt closer to a memoir. Ultimately, 'Fed Up' left me wi...

    thought this was going to be a commiseration book but it turned into so much more. do not put it down midway or you'll get the wrong idea. get to the very last page for full info. emotional labor is devalued in the workplace and shouldn't be. ...
