Chapter 3 analyzes how the presence of children affects women’s labor market outcomes, relative to men, in particular their hours worked and their use of part-time. Using data on Spain, the chapter finds that the very large use of part-time by women as of 2008 is explained in large part by the presence of children. Another interesting pattern identified is that the gender gap in average wages in the 1990s was mainly a result of family issues (having children penalized woman), whereas by 2008 the average wage gap had increased and it is not explained by family issues but by other potential explanations, such as discrimination, segregation into different jobs, differences in the acquired skills.
