THE CONVERSATION: New generation of working parents demand a better deal on shared parental leave

Press/Media: Expert comment

Release date: 12/9/2018

Description

Despite widespread belief that men should be as involved as women in all aspects of childcare, they are both still largely playing traditional gender roles when looking after children, according to a new report from Business In The Community (BITC).

This is disappointing news for gender equality, and the British government’s initiatives around family-friendly workplace policies, such as shared parental leave.
