Women earned just 84% of what men made in 2020, according to the Pew Research Center.

And that difference -- dubbed the gender wage gap -- has stayed consistent for about 15 years.

The discrepancy is often attributed to education, occupation and experience.

However, research from economists at the University of Chicago and Northwestern University suggests that expectations for gender behavior that start in childhood could contribute to differences in earnings in early adulthood.
