Review

Forget walking a mile in somebody else’s shoes, the best way to get to know someone is by spending 72 hours as their house guest. Award-winning broadcast journalist, Stacey Dooley, has packed her jammies, toothbrush and renowned curiosity in an overnight bag, as she sleeps over at some of the UK’s most fascinating families’ homes.

First stop: the Sediles. In recent years the conflict between feminists and “tradwives” has become palpable and, at times, downright ugly. The TradWife movement promotes ultra-traditional gender roles, the virtues of staying at home and raising a family. At the Sediles, Felipe is the head of the household and Lillian believes it is her duty to serve and obey her husband. It’s an eye-opening first episode that explores female autonomy and societal expectations of women.
