To mark International Women’s Day, Better Daddies started a petition for dads to pledge to help gender equality by doing a fair share of childcare and household responsibilities.
Greater involvement of fathers in childcare is good for women and gender equality. It will mean that the burden of childcare is more evenly shared between parents, providing more scope for women to work full time or longer hours, pursue studies or have more leisure time. It should also reduce discrimination against women in the workforce, as the amount of time men and women take off for parenthood becomes more even.
