This study document builds on the national benchmarking reports, which reveal the situation in eight European countries on gender gaps in care and domestic work, in work and work-life balance, and on how society can support caring masculinities to reduce such gaps and enhance gender equality. The study analysed the current situation in Norway, Austria, Germany, Iceland, Spain, North Macedonia, Slovenia and Poland.
What is Men in Care?
Men in Care (MiC) is a project of twelve national organisations from seven different European countries, which will help reduce barriers for men who want to become involved in caring activities. MiC aims to improve workplace conditions to promote men taking caring roles and will assess how policies and workplace cultures can change to enable men to become more active in caring for children, elderly, partners, co-workers and friends. Involving workers, trade unions, employers, and families, the project will enable men to take time to care for themselves and others. Find more information on the project here.
