More support for fathers

I see the report by the Women and Equalities Committee of the UK government is in the press this morning. I agree entirely with their findings. The greatest barrier to my success in the workplace is not created by my employer but by my husband's employer. Emergency childcare due to sickness, snow days etc. etc. is firmly seen as the responsibility of the female partner by many employers.

Why the contribution is important

More encouragement for men to take paternity leave (but making it financially viable to do so for a reasonable period) and to share childcare in the longer term would take away much of the stigma of unreliability and lack of commitment that women with children and of childbearing age suffer in the workplace.
