Work at home

In the New York Times today, I participate in a "room for debate" 'debate' about getting fathers to do more at home. I conveniently side-step the whole issue of what I do -- I think there is a general consensus around here, at least, that in my case, it is above average (for men) but not enough  -- and instead focus on the baseline economics and remind everyone that societal change is hard. You can't nudge people to equality. 

Reading the other discussions it seemed to me that there wasn't as much room for debate as one might have thought.
