On top of her advocacy work, Gregoire Trudeau is also hustling to the hockey rink like so many other moms.
Earlier Thursday, the Population Council, a gender equity research group, released findings from a multi-country study showing that girls who have babies in their teens are less likely to be paid for their work than women who didn’t.
The study, prepared for the conference, of 600 million women, ages 20 to 49, from 43 low- and middle-income countries found teen moms, ages 20 to 24, are 1.2 times more likely to work than their peers.
But “across all age groups, working women who had a child during adolescence are less likely to be paid for their work than women who did not have a child during adolescence,” according to the report.
It found that women who have a child before the age of 18 are set back economically for the rest of their lives.
“The ability to earn and control cash represents more than just earnings, it influences a woman’s ability to make strategic life choices,” author Stephanie Psaki, of the council’s Girl Centre, said in a news release. She said it’s one of the first studies to show across so many countries that teen motherhood can affect how much a woman earns during her life. © Gerry Kahrmann Sophie Grégoire Trudeau delivers the closing remarks at Women Deliver 2019.

“There is a strong and consistent lifelong negative association between having a child during adolescence and a woman’s economic empowerment,” the report found.
It also said most women, 20 to 49, in those countries are employed but the work is “often not economically compensated or empowering.”
More than half of all women in a majority of the countries studied worked, with employment rates being the lowest among 20- to 24-year-olds and increases steadily with age. In some countries, women’s employment levelled off after age 40.
It also said child-bearing before 18 is widespread and is common in many low- and middle-income countries. In sub-Saharan Africa, at least 30 per cent of women have a child before adulthood in nearly a dozen countries.
Iversen said the study points at the need for contraception, safe abortion and sex education as well as expanding economic opportunities for girls and women.
