‘[In the labour market] one thing we know is that, if you compare mothers to child-less women who are otherwise equal, mothers are on lower wages than child-less women. And this has become an increasingly important component of gender inequality.
‘The pay gap between mothers and child-less women is now larger than the…gender gap, the gap between men and women.’
‘Women make about 69% of what men make (not controlling for type of occupation), but most of this disadvantage is related to parental status, not sex.
‘Women without children make 90% of what men make, while mothers make 66%.’
Now. You tell me again that feminism doesn’t need to fight for mothers?
Front and fucking centre.
