Considerable attention has been paid to the economic and labour market participation of women over the last twenty years or so. While this has resulted in significant improvements, this report argues that more needs to be done to remove glass ceilings and pay gaps for women. However, the position of men – and fathers in particular – has received scant attention by comparison. This paper considers the causes of the UK’s growing ‘Fathering Deficit’. It presents findings from a survey of working fathers and suggests adjustments to both policy and practice.
