I love this woman, love whe she gets fired up, and love the messages she's sharing in this video.

As women, we cannot do it all and it's not fair that we are expected to do it all. So kick down the front door and have a conversation!! #Repost @professormaja

Why are you trying to do it all? You can’t! 👏🏻⏱ “Not everything is a priority. We battle with this culturally ingrained idea that mothering will be a glorious experience, while simultaneously pursuing a competitive career, a great sex life and rock hard abs. How are you going to do all that? It’s ludicrous and unrealistic! Let me give you 3 tips:

1) OUTSOURCE as much as you can.
2) Have a real PARTNERSHIP and discuss what needs to be done and who does what.
3) Learn to live with the MESSINESS of life!

This is #finished #invisiblelabor — it’s weird making such #subtle work. To me this piece is quite perfect combining #form and #concept but it sits very quietly on the wall. #embroidery #textileart #handembroidery #whiteonwhite #motherhood #motherartist #artistasmother #artistmother #embroideryart (this is one of what will be 3)

This morning, I made a sojourn to see Shinique Smith’s mural, which is part of the Wabash Arts Corridor led by Neysa Page-Lieberman. Shinique did her thing, and I am so proud to have been part of the project! Stunning, Shinique! #shiniquesmith #mural #blackart #contemporaryart #abstractionist #blackwomenartists #inclusionworks #equityworks #doingthework #invisiblelabor

Do you spot the 🍌🍌problem🍌🍌 in this photo? My husband found said problem in the passenger door and said, “This is a really old banana!” I reminded him that it was HE who put said banana there (emphasis on he, not an allusion to God or something) and could he remove it from my car ASAP? It only made it as far as the roof and then was rediscovered this morning before Ronan and I went to co-working. Dads also get Mom Brain and this Dad in particular gets Mom Brain exacerbated by Chemo Fog. But why does Mom Brain even exist? Why does it have to exist? A friend shared a great episode of @dearsugars about the invisible work women do and the effect it has on a woman’s ability and sense of worth. Worth was the thing that really got me. I don’t like doing work of any visibility and not get recognized for it. It erodes my self-worth and there is enough in the world that already does this. So! Listen to the podcast and talk to your invisible laborers about how you too can stop perpetuating systems of oppression. And all of this from a damn banana. #banana #momlife #mombrain #dadlife #dadbrain #chemofog #chemotherapy #emotionallabor #invisiblelabor #dearsugars #selfworth #patriarchy #caregiver #willhelmconsulting #leadershipdevelopment #personaldevelopment #bebetter

"Mom, thank you for doing everything in this house. You deserve to be paid for it." A sweet message from @ginger.snap.goods 15 year old daughter on their family chalk board. What a great momma you are ❤️🙌🏽😘

I’m on baby duty today (well, everyday...) #mamaollie #invisiblelabor #emotionallabor

Rambling text I sent to my sister that I think most women (especially moms) can relate to, & I think this Dear Sugar episode is really worth a listen, if only to start the conversation about invisible/emotional labor & how to articulate our needs in relationships & family dynamics. // Ben & I are a really great team & try to balance things out in our household, but this triggered something in me that I had been feeling yet not knowing how to articulate. In starting a business or “going back to work” after years of only working very part-time, flexible hours, I’m struggling with fear of not being able to be everything to everyone anymore. In my hiatus from traditional full-time work, my new 24-hour-a-day job has become filling in everyone else’s gaps. And it has, for the most part, worked out. But now things are changing, I’m adding more to my plate, & I don’t quite know how to navigate the endless needs & demands of being the “manager” of a household & being something else, too. // Sometimes we need to ask for & allow help. I’m terrible at that. // One foot in front of the other. // Fellow emotional laborers, you’re awesome & you’re (more than) enough & I SEE you. ❤️ #emotionallabor #invisiblelabor #dearsugar #women #mothers #momlife #equality #strongwomen #caretakers #sistertexts

Patti Maciesz
Artist

I first heard of Patti on my fave podcast, @callyrgf and I've been thinking about her work ever since. Women statistically do 200%* of the invisible labor in our culture, and it's high time they get paid for it. (*estimated statistic) Patti has taken the initiative to do the paperwork involved in getting the money she deserves. She's invoicing the patriarchy and I am HERE for it!
.
After her son was born in late 2016, Patti Maciesz found herself feeling alone and overwhelmed. The experience of becoming a mother — everything from the constant needs of her infant child to changes to her body and sense of self — shocked her. .
Anger and disappointment over the outcome of the presidential election seemed to make things even worse. So Maciesz did something that often helped her process complex feelings: She painted her experience.
.
By the end of year one, Maciesz had logged 5,616 hours raising her child and running her home. That came out to the equivalent of a $74,299.68 salary under the minimum wage in Oakland, Calif., where she lives.
.
She started sending faxes invoicing her elected officials and other members of Congress for that unpaid work (“BILL TO: THE PATRIARCHY” the timecards read). She says every U.S. senator has received at least one invoice from her so far.
.
Worldwide, women spend an estimated four and a half hours a day on chores and other unpaid work — everything from raising a child, to getting water, to going to the grocery store.
.
For men, the figure drops roughly in half. The impact doesn’t stop at lost wages for the actual unpaid work or the opportunity cost of not being able to spend that time on other things. Studies have shown that becoming a mother can adversely affect earning power, even in countries with strong family leave and social programs. Maciesz said that while she was aware of the imbalance before the baby, her own entry into motherhood made it even more striking. - @thelilynews

Working #onthetrain to NYC to finish up my visiting artist thing at NYU. Cannot wait to see what the students did #embroidery #handembroidery #textileart #autobiographicalstitches #invisiblelabor #textasart

Not every day is pretty photos. Some days it's phone calls, emails, admin work, and hustle. There's A LOT of work that happens before and after I'm behind a camera.
