Cafe Inquiry: Fathers at the Frontier

Café Inquiry – Monday, May 7, 2012, 7:00 pm, Center for Inquiry Indiana, 350 Canal Walk, Suite A, Indianapolis. Discussion Topic: “Fathers at the frontier: The impact of social policy on men’s involvement in childcare in Sweden.” Sweden ranks highly in every international study of gender equality. Women’s share of legislative positions is one of the highest in the world, and the gender wage gap is one of the lowest. It was the first nation to provide paid parental leave to fathers and arguably has established more social support for parents equally sharing childcare than any other society. In this discussion, Prof. Linda Haas of the Sociology Department of IUPUI will focus on why Sweden has taken the lead on promoting fathers as caregivers as well as breadwinners, what barriers remain to full gender equality, and what the US and other nations can learn from its example. The organizer of Café Inquiry is Andrew Olson. [masked].
