These are pretty big changes, says one of the researchers behind a new analysis of Norwegians' time use.
Fathers who shared parental leave equally with their partner felt more secure in their parental role. They were also happier in their relationship, according to a new study from the University of Gothenburg. Norwegian studies show similar results, according to researchers.
When Norway’s first female Prime Minister, Gro Harlem Brundtland, formed a cabinet that was almost half women in 1986, she attracted international attention for her decisive action. Nearly 30 years later, Norway remains near the top in addressing gender equality – but not always when it comes to small town governance.
