Anne-Marie Slaughter, president and CEO of the New America Foundation, said offering paternity leave would mean more workplace equality for women and have long-term benefits for children. When men take time off work after having a child, they and the mother are more equal partners than when only the mother stays home, Slaughter, whose husband stayed home with her and their son for four months, said. “I would argue in some ways that he was more competent,” Slaughter said.
