PODCAST: Still a man’s world? Gender inequalities, parenthood and the workplace

Over the past decades, women have drawn closer to men in a variety of areas – education, university degrees and workforce participation. But, women still earn less on average than men.

In this episode, we ask why this pay gap opens up, whether things have improved in recent years, and talk about one key factor affecting women’s pay – kids.

Joining us are Alison Andrew, Associate Professor of Economics at the University of Oxford, Christine Farquharson, Senior Research Economist at IFS and Lucinda Platt, Professor of Social Policy and Sociology at the LSE.
