Early Risers presents


‘Why can’t I have a wife?’ It’s a common joke among busy women and a controversial topic we are about to unleash with the sensational Annabel Crabb.

Annabel Crabb is one of Australia’s most popular political commentators, and the ABC’s chief online political writer. Annabel has worked extensively in newspapers, radio and television as a political commentator and has established a regular live ‘Twittercast’ of parliamentary question time. The Wife Drought is not a shout of rage, but it is asking us to sit up and listen. Sometimes as women we spend too much time thinking about flexibility from only one perspective – ours. But what about the men? Shouldn’t the fight for workplace flexibility extend to men as well? And then perhaps it wouldn’t be seen as such an anomaly to see a man in a part time role so he can spend more time with the kids? Cliché but true: kids need their fathers too.

Annabel’s book is full of stories from the author’s work in and around politics and media, and involves anecdotes about high-profile women - and men.

Don’t miss this thought provoking start to the day with a morning of table talk, corporate connecting and a sensational breakfast at Sofitel Gold Coast.
