Annabel Crabb

The Wife Drought

The Wife Drought is about women, men, family and work. Written by Annabel Crabb, it's full of candid and funny stories from the author's work in and around politics and the media, historical nuggets about the role of ‘The Wife' in Australia, and intriguing research about the attitudes that pulse beneath the surface of egalitarian Australia. Crabb's call is for a ceasefire in the gender wars, rather than a shout of rage, The Wife Drought is the thoughtful, engaging catalyst for a conversation that's long overdue.

The Wife Drought

Annabel’s new book is full of stories from her work, in and around politics and the media… The Wife Drought is not a shout of rage but it is asking us to sit up & listen… Sometimes women spend too much time thinking about flexibility from only one perspective… womens. But what about men? Shouldn’t the fight for workplace flexibility extend to men as well? Why can’t I have a wife? It’s a common joke among busy women... but it’s not a joke.
