A series of articles published last month in Working Mother magazine claims that men who seek custody of their children in contested divorces are winning just as often as women. This trend is attributed to the principle that parents who work harder to provide for the family have less time and ability to perform traditional parenting tasks. As more women devote themselves to their careers, the article suggests, they may have less time to perform parenting duties.

The thought-provoking article has been cited in the New York Times and Family Law Prof Blog.
