Gaby Hinsliff on the gender pay gap.
Amongst the young it is in favour of women now. Overall it is in favour of men but that\’s down to two things.
1) Overall is comparing women in their 50s etc, people who did not receive the same education or career opportunities as the men of their age group. This is a problem that will be solved simply by time.
2) Motherhood. The pay gap appears at the average age of primagravidae. We don\’t actually have a gender pay gap any more. We have a motherhood pay gap. To change this you\’re going to have to change biology and good luck with that in a mammalian species.
So, can we please decalre this problem over and get on with solving some of the others that plague us?
