What Fathers Have to do with it: Engaging Men as Caregiving Partners



Over the past decade, men and boys have been increasingly integrated into programs and policies that aim to empower women and strengthen gender equality. However, in most countries men and caregiving remains conspicuously absent from the gender equality agenda. Today, women represent 40% of the paid workforce and more than half the world's food producers. But men are clearly not carrying out half the world's care work. Global statistics suggest that the average time women spend on unpaid care work is two to 10 times that of men. Indeed, a core and enduring aspect of gender inequality globally is the fact that men are generally expected to be providers and breadwinners and that women and girls are generally expected to be responsible for caregiving and domestic tasks.
