The fathers’ rights movement has been picking up a lot of steam in recent years. Possibly because women are taking a more active role in the workforce, more men are taking on bigger parental responsibilities. Additionally, as the divorce rate in our country remains high, there continue to be child custody disputes between divorcing couples. These disputes have been the biggest fuel for the proverbial fathers’ rights fire, as many men feel that the courts show an unfair gender bias toward women.
Many arguments exist about the validity of the fathers’ rights movement. Many fathers claim that they face a gender bias in the courts when it comes to child custody arrangements, but others claim that such a gender bias is a thing of the past. A case could be made for each, but one case with abnormal circumstances could again raise the question of how fairly fathers are treated.
