This paper investigates the drivers of the gender pay gapin New Zealand, with a particular focus on the role of parenthood wage penalties. As with other nations, the gender pay gap is larger in New Zealand among parents than non-parents, though the mechanisms driving this relationship are not entirely clear. This paper is an initial exploration of what can be learned by combining administrative wage data, birth records, and survey data on hours worked and earnings. It examines the distribution of how long women are out of paid employment after having their first child and how this differs with pre-parenthood income, considers employment rates and wage earnings among employed women each month in the five years before and ten years after birth of their first child, and compares women who spend different lengths of time out of employment both overall and within each pre-parenthood earnings quartile. The findings indicate that parenthood contributes to the gender pay gap by penalising all women, particularly those who are on high incomes, and setting them on a trajectory of lower lifetime earnings relative to their male peers
