Research for campaign group the Fawcett Society showed that childbirth marked the start of a great divide on earnings, which continued even after children left home. Before becoming parents, men and women were equally likely to be employed but after having children, 57 per cent of mothers of under-fives were in paid work, com- pared with 90 per cent of fathers. mothers working full-time suffered a pay penalty, while pregnant women were vulnerable to discrimination, accord- ing to the report. Women with partners and no dependent children earn nine per cent less than men on average -- but for mothers working full-time with two kids, the gap is 21.6 per cent. one example is news- reader natasha Kaplinsky, who was reported last month to have had her 1m salary cut by 300,000.
