Philosophy

In the 1960s, Betty Friedan famously identified “the problem with no name” — a “strange stirring, a sense of dissatisfaction, a yearning that women suffered in the middle of the twentieth century in the United States.”

In the new millennia, women are “Fed Up,” as Gemma Hartley so aptly put it. They struggle with chronic disorganization, ADHD, emotional labor, and the mental load. This cognitive clutter robs women of fully accessing the executive functions of their brains, and limits their mobility, performance, and fulfillment. The consequences multiply when society—from the family unit to communities to organizations and companies—does not address and mitigate the causes of this modern problem. Conversely, when we work together to clear the clutter, we can unleash the full potential of one half of the population.
