Even in modern partnerships, the default expectation is that women will attend to a child's needs.
That's the observation Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO and mother of two, expresses in a video clip from "MAKERS: Women Who Make America." The documentary tells the story of the women's movement through interviews with hundreds of the "leaders, opponents, and trailblazers who created a new America in the last half-century," including Hillary Clinton, Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Ellen DeGeneres.
When discussing modern parenting, Sandberg notes:
"Go to any party with families there, where there are little kids. Watch the baby cry and watch who gets up. It's pretty much almost always the woman. And when it's not, the man gets this huge praise, like "Oh my God! You went to change a diaper!"
