Becoming a father is a life-changing experience. Eighty-five percent of fathers tell us they’d do anything to be very involved in caring for their new child, but there is no country where men are doing an equal share of the child care and housework. Watch this film to find out what’s keeping us from reaching 50/50 when it comes to taking on parenting responsibilities, and to learn more about the bold commitments that can accelerate progress toward achieving gender equality globally.
This film was commissioned by Promundo and Unilever, Dove Men+Care as a companion to State of the World’s Fathers 2019, the world’s only global report on men’s involvement in parenting and care work, produced on behalf of MenCare: A Global Fatherhood Campaign.
