This resource is a video abstract of a research paper created by Research Square on behalf of its authors. It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

A European research team claims that by trading in high-powered careers to provide childcare, mothers have created a social norm that’s been hard for today's generation to shake. Although today’s workforce features more women than ever before, women still earn 15% less than men. Among the many factors creating this wage gap, the researchers focused on women’s life choices. Using a rigorous theoretical model, they linked these choices to whether mothers had high or low future earning ability. ** ** The model argues that the previous generation’s decisions determine the career paths pursued today. If most mothers in the prior generation took lower-level jobs to allow time for childcare, then their daughters aren’t likely to opt for a high-powered career because of this social norm..."

The rest of the transcript, along with a link to the research itself, is available on the resource itself.
