Our Moms Talk question this week actually involves dads. Here is the issue posed by Rose Sevilla:
My friend’s husband recently voiced his anger about the lack of changing tables in men’s rooms, which led us to a discussion about ways in which male parents are discriminated against in our society. For example, it seems appropriate for a mother to take her child (son or daughter) into a public restroom, but what happens when a father takes his daughter into the ladies' room? Or the men’s room? In an age when both parents are taking active roles in their child’s upbringing, how can we ensure that dads don’t get left out of the deal?
Our Moms Council members are Linda Arbiter, Michele Dahl, Randi Greene and Rose Sevilla. All of these women are mothers of varying degrees of experience.
We invite anyone to answer today's question posed by Rose: Are men being discriminated against?
