This weeks’ article is short and sweet so it is included in its entirety!
Tired? Of What… by Rachael Bertsche
According to a recent study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 16% of women ages 18-44 say they are worn out most days, or every day compared with only 9% of men in the same age range. Is it because women are working outside the house and handling childcare duties? The study doesn’t specify, but Francine M. Deutsch, professor of psychology at Mount Holyoke College and author of Halving It All, has a thought. “I bet it’s not the women who share the work in the home and the breadwinning with their partners,” she says. “Equality is an antidote to exhaustion.”
Don’t forget we have three casino nights planned this Fall in all three cities. These events will benefit the FEYW schools across the state. So grab your spouse, your friends and colleagues and come one, come all a party for a great cause! We also need sponsors and silent auction donations. If you want to help or would like additional information, you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
See you all at an event soon!
