This chapter examines the Danish case of politicising fatherhood. It provides some background information on the abolishment of the daddy quota by the right-wing government in Denmark. It addresses the timing of different policies that influenced changes in the position of women from the 1960s and looks at the policies of gender equality. Finally, a lengthy historical perspective on the parliamentary negotiations on maternity and paternity leave is included.

Keywords:   Denmark, daddy quota, abolishment, gender equality, historical perspective, parliamentary negotiations, maternity leave, paternity leave
