The article investigates the role of motherhood in the careers of Tuscan women employed in the period 2003-2014. The empirical analysis is based on the use of an original database represented by the universe of tax returns presented by Tuscan taxpayers. In order to analyze the effect of the birth of a child in terms of permanence in the labor market, an analysis of duration, also called survival, is carried out. The second part of our analysis focuses on the evolution of the working career of women in terms of income, through the estimation of a regression model on individual annual income. The main results show how to become a mother makes it more difficult to stay in the labor market and is a major obstacle to the growth of a professional career. [Spacer height = “30px” id = “2”]
