Why is childcare still not equally shared?

So a poll of working mothers “found that three in five expected to find managing childcare in the holidays more difficult this year”. And this is before we even get on to single mothers (Two-thirds of working mothers lack summer childcare – UK survey, 15 July). I can do no better than quote the late, great Ruth Bader Ginsburg: “Women will only have true equality when men share with them the responsibility of bringing up the next generation.” If you think you’d like to have children with a man who would neither be able to give or help find childcare, have a cold shower and think again.
