From Gender to Mother Gap: Britain full-time working mothers earn 21% less than men

Mothers who work full-time earn 21 per cent less than men, a report revealed yesterday.

But even women without children are victims of Britain’s gender pay gap.

On average, they earn 7 per cent less than men in full-time jobs, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development said.

‘Women pay a high price for motherhood,’ the leading international think-tank warned.

It also pointed to the crippling cost of childcare in Britain, which can almost wipe out the benefit of a mother returning to work.

The study looked at the gender gap in pay between men and women who are 25 to 44, the typical age at which parents are having and raising young children.

In the UK, the pay gap between men and women with a full-time job triples from 7 per cent before starting a family to 21 per cent once a woman has children.
