Increase the amount of weeks of paid paternity leave for men!
background
Women in the UK are entitled to paid maternity leave for 52 weeks (optional but legally 2 weeks MUST be taken off after the birth), whereas men are entitled to 1-2 weeks of paid paternity leave. In 2018, men and women are meant to be equal, so why can’t a father have longer to bond with his baby?
additional details
Increasing paid paternity leave, even to 4 or 6 weeks, means fathers have time to bond with their baby, and reduces stress on mothers who are likely in need of support from their partners. Paid paternity leave increase allows: •More bonding time with their baby (minus the worry of financial strain) •Emotional/physical help for the mother from the father Increase in paternity leave is already available in other countries (Japan= year, Mongolia =14 weeks to name a few) so let’s increase it too!
