Today on the Dads with Daughters podcast I talk with Qusai Alqarqaz father of two who became an advocate for girls and women because of the women in his life. We talk about the experiences that he has had with his own daughters but also the women that led him to his advocacy.
Over the years he has written a number of articles about his experiences including:
- Fathers Can Be Gender Advocates
- A Father’s Perspective About Daughters and Engineering
- Why I Became an Advocate For Girls and Women

Wonderful advice, Qusai. Even though I’m a mother to a son, I found your words inspiring and applicable to my experience as a mom. It’s not easy being a parent and setting aside our internal expectations or social conditioning to think what our kids “should” be like.
Raising children isn’t about fitting them into a mold for society’s comfort or goals but about love and accepting them for all that they are and supporting their aspirations. I admire the safety and trust you’ve given your kids to reach out to you, even in their adult years, for advice and support. That must be extra special to know that no matter how old they get, they can lean on you for comfort or turn to you for your experience and wisdom. Thank you for sharing your journey in fatherhood!
