Gender Wage Gap Because of Children?

Although the difference in gender inequality has become less big over time, there is still a gap to be discussed.  The National Bureau of Economic Research conducted research into gender inequality and came to the conclusion that the difference in earnings is due to children. The arrival of children creates a gender gap (in favour of men) in earnings of around 20% in the long run, driven in roughly equal proportions by labor force participation, hours of work, and wage rates.
