We get a few in NZ - but really mostly University educated; yet to hear of a stay-at-home plumber dad. Here parental leave can be shared between partners (14 weeks paid, 52 weeks unpaid)I think in some ways things have sometimes become the other way round: women can do a lot of the same things as men now, but the other way round? For example, do you often see stay at home dad's? I have heard from a lot of guys they would like that, but society thinks it's strange. I have even heard people saying 'that is unnatural', what :shok:!? Unnatural? Why? It's apparently harder for men to get part time jobs too.
But overall, I still think there are more restrictions on women's activities than men's - both socially and in the workforce. Pay parity for instance is still a long way off.
