*put an end to: 끝내다

[2] “Although they did not sign any document, their action was tantamount to a de facto declaration of an end to hostile relations and the beginning of a full-fledged peace era,” Moon said during a Cabinet meeting.

*tantamount: ~와 마찬가지의
*de facto: 사실상의
*full-fledged: 완연한

2. [Herald Interview] ‘Men taking parental leave first step to reducing gender inequality’

기사요약: 미국 캘리포니아주립대 법대 명예교수 조앤 윌리엄스는 직장내 성평등을 위해서 남성의 육아휴직을 장려해야하며 육아휴직시 임금 전체가 보전되어야 할 것을 촉구했다.

팟빵 (안드로이드):

[1] Men should be allowed and expected to take parental leave and attend to their children’s needs as the first step to achieving gender equality at work, according to a prominent US feminist scholar.

*allowed: 허용되다
*expected: 기대되다
*parental leave: 육아휴직
*achieve: 얻다, 이룩하다
*gender equality at work: 직장내 성평등
*prominent: 저명한

[2] To encourage men to take parental leave more freely in a society where those who choose to do so are seen as poor workers and ineffectual men, the government should put in place a “daddy quota,” Joan C. Williams, a professor at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law, said Monday during an interview with a group of reporters.

*ineffectual: 무능력한

[3] And it is important to provide workers with higher pay while they are on leave to encourage men to use it, said Williams, who visited Seoul at the invitation of the Seoul Metropolitan Government to mark Gender Equality Week.

“If men have to make a big financial sacrifice, they won’t take the leave because they want to see themselves as breadwinners,” said Williams, who is also founding director of the Center for WorkLife Law at the university and has authored several books including “White Working Class: Overcoming Class Cluelessness in America.”

*breadwinner: 가장
*author: 저술하다

[5] According to a survey of 633 working parents conducted by a state-run support center for working moms in northwestern Seoul, 63.5 percent of the respondents said they had never taken parental leave. As to the reasons, 30.3 percent said they were concerned about what their employers would think and 21.7 percent cited the financial burden.

*state-run: 국영의
*support center: 지원센터
*respondent: 응답자
*concerned: 걱정하는
*cite: 언급하다, ~의 이유로 들다
