The proposed directive aims to address women’s under-representation in employment through improved conditions for reconciling their working and private duties. Employed parents are to be provided with greater choice in how to organise work and caring responsibilities. Particular attention is given to increasing the involvement of fathers, thus to a partnership-based division of childcare responsibilities. The BAK welcomes the initiative at the European level and theaims of the directive.
