Karen DeCrow: We should cease thinking about men as the enemy of children and women

Article here. Excerpt:

'Every day should be Father's Day.

We've been hearing about the barbecue tools which dad would like to receive. Or, gardening equipment.

What dad should get this year is new attention to fathers. The men have been getting a bad deal.
For decades I have been urging equality between fathers and mothers. Although there has been progress in this direction, fathers still have a difficult time being recognized as equal parents.

Father's Day each year makes me grateful for what my father did for me. This has little to do with our relationship, and much to do with what he taught me.
Most of us believe that women can do what men do. The challenge is to convince employers, legislators, mothers, that men can do what women do.

So last week we celebrated Father's Day and this week I reflect on it with this message: Every day should be Father's Day.'
