With all the attention on female equality lately, we at Milieux realize we all don’t think about the men that support us in these societal changes. The recent news about supporting fathers by adding changing tables to public bathrooms is just in time for Father’s Day.
The good news is that states like New York, Ohio and Florida are already working to fix the inequality that is changing tables in bathrooms. Have you ever thought about the men who need to care for their children when traveling alone? Women have it easier, comparatively. Men have babies, too. They shop with their babies, drive to gas stations with their babies and fly with their babies.
And, thanks to Donte Palmer, an advocate to change how we think about fathers, more attention is being paid to fathers’ needs on the road.
Donte created #squatforchange movement- which showed the obstacles men faced to change their children in public restrooms, and @pampers got involved. Now, over 5000 changing tables will be supplied to mensrooms nation wide.
Thank you to all the wonderful dads out there that deal with obstacles like this daily in silence. We love you for what you do and are grateful for this opportunity to recognize you.
