Journalist Gemma Hartley was getting increasingly frustrated by the unfair division of invisible labor in her home. So, she wrote about it for Harper’s Bazaar, and her article resonated enough with others to be viewed more than two billion times. So what does a more equitable partnership look like? Well, it starts with better communication. In this episode, Gemma talks with Mary Kate about having difficult conversations, setting healthy boundaries, and how effective communication can help our relationships thrive.
