Global Gender Pay Gap Map

This map highlights the percentage difference between men and women’s wages around the world. There is not a single country where women earn, on average, more than their male counterparts.

The graph shows how the average of the 28 EU countries fluctuates over the most recent years. Despite an initial drop around 2009-2010 the EU average gap has been sneaking up.

The data has been compiled from a number of sources and the most recent figures were used, none earlier than 2009.

What do these percentages mean?

For women living in these countries they can expect their salaries to be significantly lower than their male colleagues.

So for the average UK salary of £31,900 a woman would earn £26,095!

Here’s the full list. *Being the top of this list is not a good thing...
