Almost 20% of British men would like to go on maternity leave.
Just a couple of months ago, this bill raised serious doubts. Many said that there are not very many dads who want to babysit. Like, a man has a well-defined gender role, which he will not violate. But it turned out that all these doubts were in vain.
According to sociological polls, almost 20% of men are ready after the adoption of the bill to use their right to maternity leave and replace their wives "at a military post." Dads will be happy to change diapers, walk with babies and feed them, while moms take care of their careers. Three-quarters of men are willing to exercise their right to more flexible work hours.
