Media name/outlet Al Jazeera Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 7/04/18 Description However, "It's not all down to gender discrimination," says Wendy Olsen, professor of socioeconomics and head of the Department of Social Statistics at the University of Manchester. "There's also the fact of occupational segregation".
"So you might be well paid in the job that you're in, but you might have left a better job for having a child and this is very gendered. So, if there are work stereotypes around caring for children, then it's very likely we'll keep having this gender difference in pay," says Olsen.
