Are you the one who saves the day at work? Does your family expect you to do it all when you get home? Perhaps you used to like being thought of as reliable, but you long for a life of your own again-one with fewer emergency circumstances and people who need lots of "help."It isn't just you. Many women have been socialized to quietly pick up the slack and not complain-this is a setup for isolation, second guessing, and waiting for rewards that never come. This is what Sasha Mobley callsThe Strong Woman Trap. We are playing too hard at a rigged game that we didn't create. We spend our energies managing demands and treat our own emotions and needs as irrelevant.Sasha provides a hard look at the cultural beliefs that set strong, driven, ambitious women up for a life spent constantly saving others from themselves, filling in gaps, and going it alone like a hybrid of Wonder Woman and Working Girl.The Strong Woman Trapis the book is for women who spend their spare moments looking wistfully through magazines telling themselves their dreams are just one more personal sacrifice away.
