It is time that we all see gender as a spectrum instead of two sets of opposing ideals - Emma Watson
If women are fighting for gender equality, then men need to join the battle for themselves. It is no longer a time for ‘Ladies First'.

There are 250,000 stay-at-home dads in the UK, a figure which has quadrupled over the past 25yrs. A ‘conscious’ father is emerging with a hands-on attitude. Don’t these men deserve equal support and attention as the lines between maternal and paternal responsibilities become blurred?
