Fact sheet: Shared and paid parental leave

2018 | Both mothers and fathers are entitled to paid parental leave in the
Nordic countries. In order to promote and facilitate gender equality
at home and in the labour market, efforts have been made at the
political level to encourage parents to divide the leave time equally.
These efforts have yielded results: Nordic fathers take more parental
leave than fathers anywhere else in the world.
