Research has discovered that mothers make less money that childless women.
The study, carried out by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, found that on average, hourly pay rates for women are currently around 18% lower than for men. That compares with a gap of 23% in 2003 and 28% in 1993.However once women started a family, the gap widened consistently year by year so that by the time their first child had reached the age of 12, their hourly pay was 33% down on men.
Seems to me that society is on the verge of discovering that the Gender Pay Gap is indeed a myth and that it is down to personal choices and factors rather than men/institutions holding women back...
