    "Adam Memon, at the Centre for Policy Studies, said: ‘The fact that women are now earning more in their thirties may well be because they are having children later.

    ‘A great proportion of the gender gap has been about the ‘motherhood gap’, where women leave the labour market to have children and return perhaps in a different capacity or reduced wage.’

    He said he expected the gender pay gap between men and women in their 40s and 50s should also narrow as a new generation of females who are ‘achieving their potential early in their professional careers’ reach middle age.

    The gender pay gap has narrowed over the last year and is now 9.4 per cent compared to 10 per cent in 2013."
