A new study has come out suggesting that women take an average £10,000 pay cut when they return to work after having children. Why are women the only ones taking a hit for the responsibilties of balancing work and family? Why do we consistently see this as a women’s issue. Here is my new piece on the Independent about it. I would love it if you could have a read, and ideally leave me a comment over there on the Independent site, Facebook like it, or tweet it from the site. Thanks so much for reading!
