In the run up to Father's Day this Sunday Woman's Hour examines the issue of the single Dad. Whilst there are over 300,000 single fathers in the UK, post divorce the majority of men still choose not to contest their right for their children to live with them.
Jenni is joined by the author of The Book of Dave, Will Self and Richard Denton, a documentary maker and single Dad who has raised his 18 year old twins since they were aged four. They discuss whether a single dad does as good a job as a single mum? And have we now become so politically correct that most men find it difficult to admit they don't actually want to be full time single parents?
