A new workshop to help dads tackle sexism has been set up.
Feminism for Dads is part of a project to build a network of dads who can drive change at home, at work and in their communities to create a more balanced and equal world for their children.
The workshops, run by consulting group Threads Equality Agency, will explore how feminism can be useful for dads to navigate the trials of parenting, rather than as a set of rules that tells men they are wrong.
The goal is to invite men into the conversation about gender equality.
Threads’ founder Monique Ewen said: “There is a new generation of dads who want to be more involved in their kids’ lives.
“They want to be supportive partners and set an example for what it means to be caring and nurturing as a man.
“But there is no blueprint for that, so these workshops are really about empowering men to be the kind of fathers they want to be.”
The participant-focused workshops will focus on how to be a good role model, how to counter sexism and how to be caring and nurturing as a man and father.
The first of two workshops will take place at West Oxford Community Centre at 9am on October 7. The second is scheduled for the same time at Rose Hill Community Centre on October 21.
Present and future dads are welcome, including stepdads, foster dads, adoptive fathers and LGBTIQ parents.
Tickets are priced at £12.50 for unwaged, £17.50 for waged and £22.50 for better waged.
