“Why the Nordic’s shared parental leave laws are no silver bullet for gender equality”

Novare Pay Consulting CEO Erika Andersson.

“I think Sweden is a role model on parental leave. However, we have gone too far. We missed the goal. It’s not supporting equality, which was the purpose of the law. It should be utilised by both mothers and fathers, but that’s not how it has developed,”

Data shows that Swedish women’s earnings grow at a slower pace than men's following the birth of a child. An analysis by Novare Pay shows a working mother earns on average 22% less than her male co-worker. That women commonly work part-time when their children are young further contributes to lower lifetime earnings.
