France's president is working on the legislation to encourage more fathers to avail paternity leave so that mothers can join back work faster.

Francois Hollande is also pressing for additional state aid for single parents whose partners are not providing any financial support for the child.

His proposed parental leave law will enable fathers to take up to six months of paid leave after the birth of a child. The government also proposes to extend other long-term parental leave benefits to fathers.

This move will be a great support to most French mothers who work and need not worry about long leaves or dipping career prospects.
