State of the World’s Fathers: Unlocking the Power of Men’s Care

June 7, 2019
CPS partner organization Promundo this week released the biennial report “State of the World’s Fathers: Unlocking the Power of Men’s Care”. This globally recognized report is an “advocacy platform aiming to change power structures, policies, and social norms around care work and to advance gender equality”. View and download the report and executive summary here.

The 2018 webinar Raising Caring Men, with Gary Barker of Promundo and CPS’ Riane Eisler, was a call for positive versions of masculinity, supporting parenting practices that nurture caring boys and making the shift from control to connection as our most-prized masculine quality. This important conversation raised the question, “How do we use this moment to drive changes at the social and economic policy level that will set the stage for a future of gender partnership?”

In the State of the World’s Fathers report, new research is presented “on men’s caregiving from 11 countries, with additional cross-country analysis of data from over 30 countries. It calls for men’s uptake of their full share of the world’s childcare and domestic work – across all societies and relationships – to advance gender equality”.
