The State of the World’s Fathers 2021 report – the fourth in the series – presents research on care work during the COVID-19 pandemic, focusing on structural barriers that prevent equitable distribution of caregiving between women and men.

The report provides seven solutions – from the individual to the structural level – that need to be implemented to create a more care- and gender-equal world.
