In her latest book, Emma takes a new look at the “mental load” concept that put her on the map, and develops the political side of it. In this new volume, she addresses subjects like how we define “work,” women’s relationship to politics, the burden of the norm., and more.

On the agenda: 1) The mental load is not a disease: or how to depoliticize a subject in 10 easy lessons.
2) “Benevolent” sexism isn’t. 3) Real girls ─ the lack of solidarity between girls, and how some women reject all things feminine in order to liberate themselves. 4) Women and politics. And lots more.
