More on the housework debate from last week from the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR), who kicked off the whole debate with their report. Here’s a good quote, which underlines why feminism is good for men, and men could be good for feminism.
Feminism needs fathers. Childcare services, rather than tax relief for nannies or cleaners is the best way forward for a family friendly, more equal Britain.
The Guardian have also written about how the Conservatives may favour this view to get female voters on side. The budget should be interesting (well….. politically anyway!).
Here’s the report from the Fawcett Society that I wrote about yesterday. Grim reading, but if the Guardian are right might it tip the Coalition over the edge and influence their vote gaining strategy?
The IPPR also have a really interesting take on women in the boardrooms, with them taking a slightly different viewpoint than I expected for a centre-left thinktank. Good call though, there I certainly hope that perspectives in the board room change as well as gender.
