Men and Fatherhood: New Forms of Masculinity in Europe (2006)
Edited by dr. Artūras Tereškinas and dr. Jolanta Reingardė.
The project “Modern Men in Enlarged Europe: Developing Innovative Gender Equality Strategies” has attempted to create a sustainable change in gender identities by encouraging men to embrace new and modern gender roles and to overcome gender stereotypes. Parental leave is used as a means to challenge hegemonic gender identities and create new images of men as caregivers in different European countries.
What are the experiences of men on parental leave? What reactions do they get from their friends, colleagues, relatives? Does it change their relationship with their partner? Why does a man with a pram attract so much public attention? These and other questions were posed to the fathers in Denmark, Iceland, Lithuania and Malta by researchers doing a qualitative study within the project “Modern Men in Enlarged Europe: Developing Innovative Gender Equality Strategies”.
A Joint Report based on qualitative research with fathers on leave, employers and decision makers in Lithuania, Iceland, Denmark and Malta.
