In TX women who cared for children could be exempted from jury duty if they wished. My husband, a widower at the time, was called to jury duty. The judge would not release him as a doctor. His attorney spoke to the judge and said that he was a man responsible for the care of children and that he should be released from duty. Otherwise there would be gender discrimination. The judge actually agreed.

Child care needs to be more equally shared for other things to change.
