Fair Play
Available on Disney+, Hulu
For anyone who has ever thought “I have no time for myself” or “this isn’t the career and marriage combo I thought I’d have”, Eve Rodsky has been there. In the documentary Fair Play, inspired by her NYT best-selling book of the same name, Eve takes us on her journey to change the unbalanced care dynamic in her home and society at large. Written, produced, and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom (Miss Representation, The Mask You Live In) and in partnership with Hello Sunshine, Fair Play follows three families on their journeys to better balance their home life. Fair Play illustrates how fights about dirty dishes are actually linked to systemic issues affecting millions of families across the globe. Featuring interviews with Melinda Gates, Ai-jen Poo, Tony Porter, and U.S. Representative Katie Porter, Fair Play demonstrates how private lives are public issues and that when the invisible care work historically held by women is made visible, we will achieve a more equitable future for all.
