A READING SECTION TEXT 1 Questions 1-5 Read the following text and on your optic form, mark the alternative which best answers the question or completes the statement about the text. (5x2=10 marks) CHANGING ROLES: STAY-AT-HOME DADS British mechanic Neil Walkingshaw was looking for a way to look after his new born child when he went his boss with a suggestion in early 2000. His wife’s maternity leave ended and she returned to work, so Walkingshaw asked if he could switch to part time hours in order to spend half of each day at home looking after his son. His employer refused, saying the paperwork would be difficult to get anyone to share Walkingshaw’s job. Knowing that the company he worked for had given similar rights to female employees, Walkingshaw wanted to carry the subject to the court as he believed that the issue was to do with sex discrimination. On November 20, 2001 the judge ruled that Walkingshaw had been discriminated against and awarded him £3,600. The ruling is believed to be the first of its kind and demonstrates just how much views on parental roles have changed over the years. Thirty years ago few people questioned the gender roles that had prevailed for centuries. It was believed that a woman’s role was in the home and that a man’s main responsibility to his family was to put food on the table. In the 1970s and 80s, however, greater numbers of working women meant that men were no longer the only breadwinner. A father’s emotional involvement with his family also became more important. Forty years ago almost no husbands were present in the delivery room when their wives gave birth. Today, it is generally expected for male partners to attend childbirth classes and to take more responsibility for child rearing than their fathers or grandfathers did. In addition to society’s changing views of the roles men play in relation to childcare, social scientists are also re-examining the contribution a father makes to his child’s welfare and development. Researchers have found evidence to suggest that a father plays a role in child development that is quite different from that of the mother.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
