More than a paycheck: New dads want paid leave to be caregivers

Josh Levs’ Statement on New EEOC Parental Leave Guidance

The new EEOC parental leave guidance involving fathers sends an unmistakable message: Discrimination against dads is illegal.  Fathers are just as capable of and needed for taking care of our children as moms are.  It’s time to end outdated policies that hurt women every day — policing women into caregiving roles while policing men out of them, making it nearly impossible for many couples to make non-traditional choices.  Until more men have the chance to stay home after a child’s birth, many women won’t be able to “lean in” at work.  That’s a central message of my upcoming book, Stretch Out. As a nation we need to stretch out the rigid structures — including laws and corporate policies — and reject sexist stigmas that are holding families, and our country, back.

Let’s hope the Neanderthals are listening.
