Maternity leave is a practice carried out all over the world. Interestingly, Germany was the first country to legalize parental leave in 1883. Then, Sweden followed in 1891 and France in 1928. In fact, in 1919, the International Labor Organization developed and adopted recommendations for the protection of motherhood and childhood, which were based on three fundamental principles: parental leave, salary payments, and job retention.

Furthermore, while maternity leave is common practice in most countries, some countries’ laws allow men to get paternity leave as well. For instance, in Iceland, the proportion of men caring for their children is 90%. According to Icelandic law, a man who has a child can take paternity leave of 3 months on an equal basis with a woman. During this time, he is paid an allowance amounting to 80% of his average earnings.

On the other hand, sometimes, even if the country’s laws allow to take paternity leave, not everyone uses this opportunity. The reasons can be related to the economy, labor market characteristics, and gender stereotypes. However, the trend towards involved paternity is getting stronger.

Accordingly, Real Research launched a survey on maternity and paternity leave practices. For instance, is the public aware of paternity leave?
