Women are also more likely than men to have work interruptions due to childcare responsibilities. Across the European Union, more than 40 percent of women compared with just 2 percent of men have stopped working to look after their child for at least one month. This practice of mothers more often than fathers taking time off to look after children can be partly explained by the traditional view of women’s labor force participation and care responsibilities. For instance, more than half of parents report traditional attitudes towards work and care in Germany, Hungary, Poland, and Portugal.
