On Valentine’s day the Stanford GIN group discussed the question of the interaction between gender and marriage status.

We discussed the observation and its consequences and touched on the ‘motherhood penalty’ or ‘maternal wall’. Want to learn more about these concepts? Go to NGN: New Girls Network.
