Watch Me on Huffington Post Live!

I was happy to be asked to join a panel of experts and parents on HuffPost Live for a half-hour live show,  “Leaning Together,” about Sheryl Sandberg’s “Lean In” and Lisa Belkin’s article about how, in order for women to “Lean In” to careers, men have to do more at home.

The segment originally aired Wednesday afternoon, but you can watch it here at your leisure. http://live.huffingtonpost.com/r/segment/sheryl-sandberg-lean-in-housework/514681e42b8c2a44010002a2 (please follow the link, stupid WordPress doesn’t embed video very well)

It was a great discussion about careers, gender, and the division of paid and household work between couples. I defend men as more involved than they are often given credit for, and emphasize the importance of discussing your priorities and career goals with your spouse, and acting like a true team in order to support each other.

I’m really happy that fathers’ issues are being discussed more and more and are finally getting the attention they deserve. We are all better off when families work well, and we can’t keep treating “family issues” as only “a woman’s issue.” After all, we’re all in this together.

So, what do you think about the HuffPost Live segment?

  1. I thought you made some really thoughtful points overall, but the one that stood out the most to me was when you spoke of your students and noticed what types of career paths they were pursuing and how it varied by gender.
