This is something which feminists have fought for, so IMO a good example of how feminists do fight for men's rights, as well as women's.

We have Statutory Paternity Leave in the UK, too:

although the amount of time fathers can take and the amount of money they're entitled to is limited and falls far short of maternity leave and benefit, which is a shame, IMO.
