About the Author
"Mangino's sharp insights into contemporary gender dynamics persuasively argue that there remains much to be done to achieve equality between partners. The result is a vital manual for understanding how gender norms shape domestic life and how readers can change the script."--Publishers Weekly
Mangino, gender expert and professional facilitator, has written an inspiring and inclusive guide for rethinking and reworking household gender roles...An enlightening read that offers tangible methods for families and community members interested in dismantling the gender binary.--Booklist (starred review)
"Incisively examines narratives and dialogues around gendered work in the home and provides counter-narratives to help readers find more balance in their partnerships. Mangino delves into gender norms; how they impact daily life; how they can be challenged--and changed--if examined effectively; and how consciously to build new systems, one step at a time, in the home. Equal Partners is an approachable starting point for people who want to redress inequalities in their own relationships from an informed perspective."--Michelle Anya Anjirbag, Shelf Awareness "Kate Mangino offers an inclusive and accessible look at how we can achieve gender equity at home. She reframes common roadblocks and chart a practical course for how we can be accountable in our relationships. No one gets a pass. And everyone benefits."
--Anna Marie Johnson Teague, author of The Book of Dares
"Genuine gender partnership at home is not a "women's issue," it's good for us, our partners, our children, and society broadly. Want to super-charge your relationship, role model respectful partnership for your children, and rev up the economy all at the same time? Then read Equal Partners--ideally with your partner--and learn how to pushback on traditional gender norms to truly show up as a partner at home."
