Publisher's Summary

'I need a wife'.
It's a common joke among women juggling work and family, but it's no joke. Having a spouse who takes care of things at home is a godsend on the domestic front and an asset on the work front and is an advantage enjoyed by vastly more men than women.
Full of candid and funny stories from politics and the media, The Wife Drought shares intriguing research about the attitudes pulsing beneath the surface of egalitarian Australia.

Honest balanced and practical discussion of gender issues in politics.

Annabelle Crabbe is a respected journalist and celebrity. This book explains a lot and includes important historical data from interviews with personalities from Australian politics over the past 40 years. I enjoyed the book, it got me thinking. I would never read feminist literature so this is a milestone for me. I recommend it. I'm encouraged to "read" more Australian books.
