Fathers of Daughters

According to a study published in 2018, having a daughter affects men and women differently. Fathers show a tendency to hold less traditional attitudes to gender roles (traditional male breadwinner and wife as a homemaker) if they have a girl in school age. The authors asssessed a sample of parents spanning two decades (1991-2012) and found strong evidence that having daughters particularly decreased fathers' likelihood to hold traditional attitudes to traditional gender roles when the girls reached school-age (by 8% when in primary school, by 11% when in secondary school) (via).
