    Shelf life and lifestyle necessities.

    Women still want to settle and have a family. Pregnancy and placing the welfare of the child (children) kinda puts the brakes on gruelling stressful touring, exhausting stage performances etc.

    The successful women in the industry have inevitably retired early or have been prepared to make huge compromises by delaying starting a family or having no children at all.

    Until any given society reaches the point where men are accepted as equally able to play the traditional role of primary carer, mother and homemaker, then the unfairness of the burden will still fall to the woman.
