FI briefing: Paternity, Maternity and Parental Leave

17 September 2010

The UK needs to design a parenting leave system that supports parental choice, while encouraging greater sharing of domestic and childcare responsibilities. This will meet the aspirations and needs of women as well as men; and of children as well as parents.

Ensuring that parenting leave can be, and is, shared between fathers and mothers will achieve a step change in gender expectations, improve equality in the workplace and at home, support fair and durable relationships, benefit the economy, and improve outcomes for children.

The Fatherhood Institute’s briefing on paternity, maternity and parental leave, Supporting Families and Relationships through Parental Leave, sets out a plan for how to achieve this holy grail.
