What about men?

Published on : 13 September 2013 - 8:20am | By Themes Desk (Screenshot: Promundo)
More about:

In many countries, men don't stick around to raise their children. This is a missed opportunity.  “Men and fathers who engage in caretaking are an important role model for children," says Gary Barker, director of Promundo, a Brazilian-based organisation which promotes better gender relations. "They also have a better relationship with their wives.”

In “What about men”, an event organised by Rutgers WPF, 170 people gathered at the Olympic Stadium in Amsterdam to discuss men, masculine roles, and what happens when men get involved at home.

usually men, like my boyfriend are really useless with children. They are good in sport but for the rest it's a diffcult life.

Kate 15 December 2014 - 4:59pm

Fortunately, there are countries in which men take care of their children.

men and family are not so friendly. I can assure it.
But not all the men are the same.

Samantha G 11 December 2014 - 9:22am / us

men should be send to school till they are 40 years old.

marika 10 December 2014 - 5:19pm

also men should grow up and take care of their children. Exactly like women.

Samantha G 10 December 2014 - 11:41am / us

men are lazy and sometimes violent.
With children they are often absent!
We have to work a lot on it!

Samantha G 10 December 2014 - 8:22am / us

men.. it's a long tale. They will not change till the end.
They feel strong for their body. But we know the truth. Some of them are animals.

David Lemon 8 December 2014 - 11:12am / US

men and caretaking are too rare.
Maybe after this video someone else will move himself.

I think we can't change our history. As before phisical quality was more appreciated, as consequence men were more appreciated.
We need time to change mentality. And something happened. We'll see.

David Lemon 6 December 2014 - 4:53pm / us

this video should be watched by men who think to be perfect.
In my country the law is changing and now men will be obliged by law to take out work allowance in order to take care of their children.

Simon Kepler 6 December 2014 - 10:48am / italy

in my country men and women are exactly the same. regards

Silvana Cross 5 December 2014 - 6:39pm / USA

men and women are different but it shouldn't be a weak point.
We should behave to improve each other.
RNW with this video show how can be useful to speak about it.

Let me say when I watch my husband playing football with my son I feel really lucky.
I know some men are really not well educated and their ignorance could cause violence.

Lidia Samers 4 December 2014 - 1:42pm / USA

let me say men are violent and do not respect women at all.
Sure it's not everyone but people should have a better education in order to change mentality.

every country has its story about men, women and sex.
I think we can say a lot of things about this topic but in any case there will be some phisical differences that make the women in a weak side.

men and children are not a deal!
not at all.
Usually we are considered babysitter, mum and worker for free..
Men wake up.

Grem 28 October 2014 - 8:44am / louisiana

This becaues in history men have had a dominant role.
They worked and the woman took care of the children.
Now having a family is a huge task!
And we need men as well!
