This report based on the State of the World's Fathers(SOWF) report, which captures data policies, programmes, and research related to boys and men's participation in caregiving and fatherhood, maternal, newborn and child health (MNCH), and violence prevention, brings together the components related to or advancing child rights and gender equality. By doing so, this report defines a global advocacy agenda for child right and other organizations on engaging boys and men towards equal share in unpaid carework throughout the life-cycle and promoting gender equality and other positive outcomes in the lives of girls, boys and young people, including fathers' themselves. This report is the first of its kind – a testimony to the lack of visibility of and priority given to men’s caregiving and fatherhood, and the limited understanding of what this means for gender equality and children's well-being.(Author abstract modified)
