Forbes: The Surprise Protagonists In Eve Rodsky’s Fair Play Film, Directed By Jennifer Siebel Newsom (August 25, 2022)

“We are that Wonder Woman/Title IX generation who were told we could have it all, be it all, do it all. We’re such achievers and we were told to lean in, but I think this is the reckoning. It’s too much. The pandemic should have gotten us to slow down but nothing shifted. But with caregiving in all of our faces since the onset of the pandemic, people are paying more attention. That’s why the time is now. The struggle is on display. And when we are all struggling, it’s time for systemic change.” -Jennifer Siebel Newsom

Katie Couric Media: Clean Sweep: Why Splitting Household Chores Transforms Families by Alaina Mancini (July 14, 2022)

“Every man who’s seen this film has come up to me to tell me how the film has transformed their behavior at home and how they’re contributing more. That’s really, really cool. Now we need these men, especially men who are leaders in the workforce — whether in the private or public sector — to model that behavior, parent out loud at work, and really help us as a society recognize and value that workers have lives outside of the workplace.” -Jennifer Siebel Newsom

Parents: New Film ‘Fair Play’ Shines the Spotlight on Undervalued Care Work in Families and Communities by BethAnn Mayer (July 8, 2022)

“The film, directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, shows why the fight over who is going to clean the family’s dirty dishes is about much more than just those dishes.”

“It’s a particularly urgent topic, as the overturning of Roe vs. Wade could force more women into caregiving situations they did not want to be in.”

The New York Times: ‘Fair Play’ Review: Casting a Floodlight on Invisible Labor by Natalia Winkelman (July 7, 2022)

“Most vital is the film’s look at where the United States falls short in its support of parents, particularly its limited access to subsidized child care. The burden of invisible labor can be mitigated on a case-by-case basis, but at the end of the day, it is the system that needs to change.”

“We’ve rendered invisible all of the care work that literally holds up households, holds up communities, and society. Our economy benefits off of the backs of the unpaid and invisible work of women, in particular women of color. And so we as a society have got to do more to advance gender equity.” -Jennifer Siebel Newsom
