The Gender Pay Gap - Why Does It Exist?

It’s been two years since the government announced plans to force companies with more than 250 employees to publish their gender pay gap. The new rules came into effect in April 2017, however very few companies have published their data. Recently we saw the BBC, for the first time, take the unusual step of disclosing who their highest paid presenters were. This caused not only concern as to how TV licence payers’ fees were being used but also a potential backlash from female stars, as the figures revealed that of the 96 highest earners only a third were women with the top seven all being men.
