Why do mums stay at home and dads go to work?
Why do some women treat men like idiots around babies?
Where are all the ‘new fathers’ we hear so much about?
When he became a dad, Gideon Burrows didn’t realise other men didn’t do an equal share, or that he could have got away with doing far less.
On his journey to fairer fatherhood he encountered dismissive midwives and father phobic workplaces, fanciful media stereotypes and patronising playgroup mums.
He discovered the real reason men don’t do childcare. And what we should all do about it.
