NATURALISATION OF THE DIFFERENCE: THE EXPERIENCE OF FATHERHOOD IN SWEDEN AND POLAND
Languages of publication
Research indicates that the gender of a parent has a great impact on how s/he engages in parenting. The ex- pectations towards men and women significantly differ and are strictly connected with dominating models of masculinity and femininity. They are also related to biological differences between men and women that often serve as a convenient explanation for the unequal power order. The article seeks to answer questions on how men in Sweden and Poland experience their parenting, taking into account the naturalised differences between fatherhood and motherhood, and how these differences affect power relations.
