How much do children need their dads? This talk looks at childcare and fatherhood in both western and non-western societies.
Paula Sheppard compared studies of the effects of 'father absence' on children in western, industrialised societies and non-western societies. She noted that whereas in western societies the results were consistent, in other societies they varied. Paula Sheppard is currently a research fellow at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.
