Through Thick and Thin (Paperback)
Icelandic Men on Paternity Leave
This book contains the results of the project Fathers on Paternity Leave, a social experiment which ran from 1996-1998. It reveals the impact of the paternity leave on the fathers, their relationship with the child, the division of labour within the family and thus on the level of equality in the home. It aims to show how division of domestic work is increasingly based on negotiations between the couple.
