No women's equality

Average wages for women in the workplace fell by £2,700 in a year, a new report reveals.  It found that this year average earning for women in the UK had fallen from £18,000 to £15,400 while earnings for men were unchanged at £24,800.

The UK now lags behind Bulgaria and Burundi in the list of those societies where women and men have the most equitable life chances in education, work and health. The UK is ranked overall 26th in the Global Gender Gap Report and  46th for economic participation and opportunity and 32nd for educational attainment.
