Fair Play

Reese Witherspoon Book Club Pick

Book Proposal, Book Creation & Publicity Content

Eve Rodsky presents a game-changing, sustainable solution with Fair Play (Putnam, October 2019) – a system for rebalancing the domestic workload between partners and putting an end to the invisible work that women do, regardless of whether they work outside the home. Using a set of four rules structured as a “game” between two partners, Fair Play identifies the 100 main tasks in any marriage and then shows, step-by-step, how to divide those tasks fairly (not necessarily equally!) so that both parties contribute their share. 

 

Fair Play is a first-of-its-kind collaboration with Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine media company, and Rodsky has been personally tapped by Reese as an expert on this topic for a new generation of women.
