Leading Women for Shared Parenting: about to launch nationally

"Parental responsibility" and "time sharing" are terms frequently used in Florida to convey a sense of common parenting unity and involvement in children's lives following divorce.

Notwithstanding that, though, and despite similarities at work in other states, the reality that many family law commentators note as existing for many divorced dads in child custody outcomes is that the mother has sole physical custody following a marital dissolution. That often leaves the father with limited access to the kids pursuant to a visitation schedule that often provides for alternative weekends or similar scheduling.

A strong majority-held view across most of the nation, concludes one university study on post-divorce parenting, is that children are best served by equally shared custody arrangements when possible, an argument often advanced by fathers' rights groups without much additional support.

That seems about to change in a big way with the scheduled Fathers' Day launch of a new group formed by women and with only women members. Leading Women for Shared Parenting has a member base of some very prominent women and representation from Congress, law, medicine, the social sciences and many other diverse fields.

The rationale for the start-up: Most women, too, agree, that in most instances a closely shared equal access and co-parenting following divorce is optimal for the kids and that the best way to combat age-old stereotypes concerning family law and the roles of fathers post-divorce is for women to speak up rather than representatives from fathers' rights groups.

As stated, the advocacy group has broad participation. Karen DeCrow, for example -- a feminist and the former president of the national Organization for Women -- is a member, as is note conservative Phyllis Schlafly.
