2013: The Year of the Working Dad06 Dec 2012 08:51 am

working-dad.jpgI’ve decided to dub 2013 “The Year of the Working Dad” because I’m sick of all the focus on working mothers.

Seriously, men have children too and it’s about time we started accepting this fact as a society. Just yesterday a story appeared in the Wall Street Journal about how women now make up one-third of all the doctors and lawyers in the country, and the reporter saw it fit to ask a female attorney about her plans to raise a family.

A Miami based lawyer, Lindsey Lazopoulos, the article states,

graduated from the University of Miami School of Law last year and now is a commercial litigator. Two partners in the Florida firm where she works are mothers raising children, she said. Ms. Lazopoulos said she isn’t focusing on raising a family yet. “For me, and for other women we’re kind of just trying to get a start on our careers and focus on that,” she said.

What about the guys!? I may be going out on a limb here, but I’m thinking Josh Mitchell, the reporter who wrote the story, would not have asked any male lawyers such questions.

Of course not. We don’t think about men as working dads, as a recent blog post in the New York Times written by a working dad pointed out. (more…)
