Shiela Hawkins- Equal Custody

Idaho is the only state in the nation that legally allows two parents who do not live together equal time with their children. Other states are being lobbied now to guarantee equal shared custody. Recently, the Tennessee legislature considered the proposal, but it was not approved. This leaves some fathers frustrated from navigating through a court system they say has a negative gender bias. Ann Lloyd narrates this report, produced for WUOT's Next Wave Radio Project by Shiela Hawkins.
