Abstract

How can fathers push for more gender equality? Monika Queisser, Willem Adema and Chris Clarke write that in spite of an increasing number of countries granting parental leave, the number of fathers making use of these rights is still very low. They point out that financial considerations are powerful factors in making leave decisions, as women still make considerably less money than men. This is not, however, the only impediment: prejudices and cultural pressure also play a crucial role and if this picture is to change it will require greater efforts from both employers and fathers themselves
