Philipp M. Lersch, Marita Jacob and Karsten Hank have recently published an article in the new Virtual Special Issue of the European Sociological Review, which is a collection of outstanding research on the topic of “Inequality over the Life Course”. In the article “Parenthood, Gender, and Personal Wealth“ they analyse the gender-specific association between parenthood and the growth of personal wealth over time and find restrictions in the wealth accumulation of mothers compared to childless women and fathers. We are pleased to be featured next to other relevant and interesting articles!
