Mothers can be dismissed by employers because of gaps in their CVs. Now, a campaign gives mums a way to proudly list maternity leave as a full-time job
The gender pay gap affects women at all levels of society and really hits with what sociologists call ‘the motherhood penalty’ – the impact that maternity leave or career breaks have on employability. According to the McKinsey Global Institute, the equality gap could be costing the world £21tn a year – and that’s only the financial loss to society, let alone the skill deficit. Women face a dilemma. Do they include the reasons for their ‘CV gap’ on their applications knowing this may harm their chances of landing a job, or try some creative accounting?
