Abstract

On Tuesday, International Women's Day, the Fawcett Society published a review of the the progress (or otherwise) of women in the UK labour market. Their central finding was that women - in full-time work - earn significantly less than men which can amount to some £3000,000 over a working lifetime. Clearly while the gender pay gap has narrowed over the years, something still needs to be done.Here, however, are 3 features of the labour market where women have done relatively well recently (according to the Labour Force Survey data).
