Blame the Institution not Just the Fathers

You are here

Interesting piece in the Chronicle of Higher Education from Dr. David Leonard, who advocates for the voices of academic men and women seeking equitable parenting/care-giving partnerships in non-traditional families. Much of the current research reinforces traditional roles (and thus pits the mother against the father) rather than looking at institutional policies & work climates and how these antiquated vestiges force non-traditional families to make more traditional decisions. Lehigh ADVANCE programs and others strive to transform the institution.
