Why is it not? The fact that more women assume this role does not prove they are forced into it. When I had little kids, I brought them to school in the morning, because my wife had to be to work too early. However, I can absolutely guarantee that she felt a need to do so, more than I.

To this day, she feels like she has to 'be there'. No one is telling her to.
