Fathers' rights topic: Movement does not have anti-woman agenda

8912645_S.jpgThis week, we are discussing two articles from a series of opinion pieces that recently appeared in the New York Times. The series focuses on "Fathers' Rights and Women's Equality." The fact that such a topic would be so thoroughly covered in the NYT demonstrates how much attention the issue of fathers' rights is now receiving.

Fathers' rights topic: Parental rights for unmarried dads

10651330_S.jpgOne of our posts last week focused on the fact that the fathers' rights movement is gaining a lot of attention nationwide. As a sign of just how much attention is being paid to the issue, the New York Times recently featured a series of differing opinion pieces on the topic of "Fathers' Rights and Women's Equality."

The scientific arguments defending the importance of fathers

20087881_S.jpgTo the casual observer, it is easy to see why mothers are so important in the lives of their children. Not only are they responsible for carrying the baby during pregnancy and for giving birth, their nurturing instinct after the children are born is often obvious.

Fathers' rights movement making more headlines nationally

10799102_S.jpgWhenever we assert the rights of a given group, it is important to remember that we are speaking in a kind of shorthand. For instance, "fathers' rights" is a shorter way of saying equal rights for fathers. Proud dads are not looking for special treatment, just fair and equal treatment in matters of child custody.

Divorce and stay-at-home parents

7683076_S.jpgThe decision to become a stay-at-home parent is a big one for many couples, and often a very good one for the family. What a couple gives up in income is often made up in savings on day care costs, more time with children, a more kept-up household, and so on. For a spouse who takes on this role, however, there is also a risk if the marriage fails.

Challenging the 'divorced dad' stereotypes

10095764_S.jpgWhat's the difference between a "single father" and a "divorced dad?" This sounds like the setup to a joke, but it's not. Many of us would use those terms interchangeably, but there is a difference, according to some. And that distinction may reflect a larger problem with the way that society views the custody rights of men.
