Historical factors such as the absence of a total war which shook up societal structures in other European countries.
Expensive childcare and unequal career development paths
Venture capital dominated by men

How can we tackle inequality?


Subsidized child care would be desirable, but is in the end a tax payer decision.
Extended parental leave for both parents
Education
Role models and communities
