the 57 Jobs Dominated by Women With the Biggest Gender Pay Gap #infographic

Imagine if every woman in the UK started working for free on 28th October – and continued working for free until the end of the year. Now imagine this is not a charitable gesture: it's a system glitch. Poor bruise, right?

Unfortunately there is the glitch. Data from the National Statistics Office (ONS) shows that women earn 17.2 per cent less on average than men. This is not just a glitch. It's decades of systemic inequalities and sexism at organization. Women will not get fair pay for another 60 years at the present rate of decline.

The gender pay gap is so deeply ingrained in our culture that men have a higher rate of pay for doing the same work in two-thirds of jobs that are dominated by women. That includes professions like dentists, librarians and managers of public health.

For 2019 we used ONS figures to describe the 57 women-dominated occupations for which men are paying more. We then discovered the pay gap for each of these occupations. First, we explained these inequalities with a scatter graph and a set of charts so you can see how the gender wage gap extends to any profession and industry. Ready to feel short?
