Beer & Braids: For generations, women have fought to have their efforts on the homefront recognized as legitimate work. Now, more men are taking up the same cause.

And many of them -- especially stay-at-home Dads -- are discovering that's it's awfully tough to cook dinner, do the laundry and break down stereotypes ... all while trying to break up a fight between a three-year-old and a five-year-old. It's something freelance writer and broadcaster Cameron Phillips knows about intimately. We aired his documentary Beer & Braids.
