To advance businesses, societies, and families, it's time to treat dads as equal caregivers to their children.  Time for all of us, men and women, to correct our understandings of men. All In shatters myths about fathers. It shows that women can't get equal opportunities in the workplace if men can't get equal opportunities at home. It is being called a "rallying cry," the "anthem" of our time, igniting a revolution for gender equality.

Josh Levs spent 20 years reporting for NPR and CNN, where he became a lead on-air fact checker. He then turned his attention to modern parenthood, stunning viewers with frank discussions among men. Then, Levs was denied fair parental leave to care for his preemie daughter and sick wife. He responded with legal action against CNN/Time Warner and a public campaign that landed him on the front page of the New York Times. His effort drew support from all sectors across the United States and worldwide. The company ultimately revolutionized its policy for the better -- and other numerous other corporations have followed suit.

Why paternity leave is a crucial women's rights issue
Why paid family leave is a baby's human right

Textul de pe ultima copertă

When journalist and fatherhood columnist Josh Levs was denied fair parental leave by his employer after his child was born, he fought back—and won. In the process, he became a leading advocate for modern families. In All In, he shows how father-hood today is far different than for previ-ous generations and what that means for our individual lives, families, workplaces, and society.
Growing numbers of men are becoming stay-at-home dads, working part-time, or taking on flexible schedules to spend more time with their children. Even the traditional breadwinner-dad is being trans-formed. Dads today are more emotionally and physically involved on the home front than ever before. They are "all in" and—like mothers—struggling with work-life balance and doing it all.
Levs explains that despite these un-precedented changes, the structures that shape our family lives remain rigid. Our laws, corporate policies, and gender-based expectations in the workplace are horribly outdated, preventing both women and men from living out the equality we believe in—and hurting businesses in the process, too. Women have done a great job of speak-ing out about this, Levs argues. It's time for men to join in—in a big way.
Combining Levs's personal experiences with investigative reporting and frank con-versations with fathers about everything from work life to money to sex, All In busts popular myths, lays out facts, uncovers the forces holding all of us back, and shows how we can join together to change them.

Recenzii

“A manifesto of work and life for men that aims to be for working fathers what Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In was to working mothers: a cogent analysis of the systemic problems in work culture that make it so difficult to be a parent.”
“CNN reporter Levs issues an articulate call for men to fight against the laws, policies, and stigmas preventing them from fully participating in their families’ lives.”
“Well-documented and easy-to-comprehend data on why men need more paid time off to be with their newborn children.”
“A new generation of fathers is joining legions of women in the fight for equality. All In shows how men and women can unite to overcome outdated policies and gender-based stigmas holding them back and make big changes that help families, businesses, and the entire nation.”
All In is an inspired, positive and original approach to the ideal of loving being a father. Josh Levs has touched me. Not literally, but philosophically—as being proud to be a man in our society whose voice can be heard if we simply employ the contents of this wonderful read.”
“A must read. All In crushes outdated yet powerful stereotypes and—with fresh voices, insightful research and a passionate call to action—offers a more expansive, more hopeful and ultimately more human vision of what it means to be a good man.”
“Levs says it well: ‘the first months of life have a huge impact on the following years.’ We all benefit when families—moms and dads—get more quality time at home with their kids from the get-go. Let’s go all in to fix the policies that make it so.”
“Dads matter! Josh Levs passionately makes the case that society has marginalized the role of fathers, and it’s time we pay attention to this unbalance. I hope All In leads to a serious national discussion.”
“Josh Levs leaves virtually no stone unturned in cataloging the state of modern fatherhood, uncovering its game—changing impact on masculinity, relationships, media, marketing, and more. His insights and conclusions will serve as a roadmap to the coming decade of parenting and relationship research, family leave policies, and product marketing efforts.”
“One of the most important books written about fatherhood. Engaging and entertaining, All In should be read by fathers, mothers, CEOs, policy makers, and anyone who cares about improving American society.”
“The changes we need in the workplace—from paid parental leave to additional flexibility and more—will not only be better for families, they’ll also be better for business. Josh Levs lays out a clear and compelling path for how dads can join with moms to make these changes happen.”
“…All In does a superb job of showing how we can make positive changes that benefit organizations, employees and their families, and our society.”
All In represents the voice of any parent who feels boxed in by gender stereotypes, at home and at the office. Josh’s energetic style and exhaustive research…comprise an important treatise on how to reboot our obsolete instincts and policies toward working parents.”
