What happens when women are the primary or sole earners? Is it only stigmatized if they're coupled up with men? Maya Lau, Journalist and host of Other People's Pockets, helps unpack the gender baggage around breadwinning, household finances and divorcing unsupportive husbands. Plus, Cristen tracks down the origins of the male breadwinner ideal and how it got SO baked into domestic life.
