The traditional ‘nuclear’ family home can be a challenging place, but the problem is bigger than that: as a way of organising daily life, it places unfair and unnecessary burdens on women (and men too), it entrenches inequalities, entraps us financially, hinders certain kinds of child development and is an obstacle we face to a fairer society. Anthropologist Kristen Ghodsee joins science writer Angela Saini for a vision of more contented and connected societies, as well as a practical guide to what we all can do to live the good life every day.
