Dads attitudes keep girls back in gendered roles

Recent research shows that fathers who do not wash dishes or do laundry tend to raise “girlie girls.” (their words not mine). UBC psychologist Toni Schmader found that girls with fathers with more egalitarian attitudes about child care, cooking and cleaning are more likely to grow up and work outside the home (for pay) and not aspire to be housewives. In other words fathers make a big difference in girls lives simply as role models. I have to get busy and finish my book for parents on how we hold girls back. [Soucre: Vancouver Sun, 28 Jan 2013]
