Crediting stay-at-home parents

The article on working mothers lacks credibility because the author never interviews any working fathers who stay home. The author also never mentions how much housework and child care the husbands of the full-time homemakers perform.

Discrimination against women will never be eradicated until all husbands take equal responsibility for housework and child care and are fully willing to be full-time homemakers when children are young.
