Can smart wives end the wife drought?

Event date: 4 November 2020

Who needs a wife?

Dinner to cook. Homework to supervise. Laundry to wash. Dishes to clean. Floors to vacuum. Bedtime stories to tell.

Competing work-family commitments have led to what Annabel Crabb calls ‘The Wife Drought’. A need for someone, or something, to alleviate domestic pressures as professionals balance their careers with home.

The solution? Smart wives like Siri, Alexa and other pleasant, helpful and perpetually available smart home assistants who can tick off household tasks – with enough energy left to ask about your day.

Checking off to-do lists while getting more free time. Everyone wins… or do they?
