Happy Father’s Day from MenCare!

What does fatherhood mean to you?

This Father’s Day, take four minutes to see what men, women, and children around the world have to say in MenCare’s newest film, Being a Father.

Being a Father was produced alongside the launch of State of the World’s Fathers – the world’s first-ever report to provide a global view of the state of men’s contributions to parenting and caregiving around the world.

Around 80 percent of the world’s men and boys will become fathers in their lifetime, and virtually all men have at least some connection to children in caregiving relationships. Yet despite this, engaging men in caregiving is only just beginning to find its way onto the global gender equality agenda.

Launched the week before Father’s Day, the State of the World’s Fathers report provides a periodic, data-driven snapshot of the state of men’s contributions to parenting and caregiving globally by addressing four issues related to fatherhood: unpaid care work in the home; sexual and reproductive health and rights, and maternal, newborn, and child health; men’s caregiving and violence against children and women; and child development.

It defines a global agenda for involving men and boys as part of the solution to achieve gender equality and positive outcomes in the lives of women, children, and men themselves.

This Father’s Day, we invite you to dive deeper into how and why fathers can change lives for the better by reading State of the World’s Fathers 2015: sowf.men-care.org
