In October the BBC said that median average pay for women at the corporation was 9.3 per cent less than men, compared with a national average pay gap of 18.1 per cent.
The Fawcett Society said younger women as well as older female employees were now seeing their pay fall behind that of men, claiming that the drive to equalise pay is "going backwards".
Friday 10th November is Equal Pay Day - a day which has been calculated to show that, because of the pay gap that exists between men and women, women will now effectively work "free" for the rest of the year. This year specifically, women in full-time work will actually earn 3.4 per cent more, on average, than their male counterparts.
Britain has the fifth highest gender pay gap in Europe, and, according to the Fawcett Society, it will take more than 100 years to close: an increase of 38 years on 2016's estimate. This inequality carries through to later life, as women's retirement prospects are generally worse than men's. The persistent gender pay gap, maternity leave and career breaks can all hold back women's earning potential and this often impacts pension savings.
"This is an unfair barrier, so scrapping the minimum earnings threshold would make pensions more inclusive for part-time working women".
"Employers with 250 staff or more need to review their pay systems and publish their gender pay gaps, with a clear action plan in place to close it", she said.
For 47 years, it's been illegal to pay men and women different rates for the same job. Over any 10-year period since the stock market began, stocks have done better than cash nine times out of 10.
The survey was revealed to mark Equal Pay Day.
"That is why we have introduced a legal requirement for all large employers to publish their gender pay and bonus data by April 2018".
It said that because the gap was widest for older women, it meant the United Kingdom was actually "going backwards" in its pay parity efforts.
The gap is wider for women in their fifties, at 18.6%, but has significantly grown among women in their twenties - from 1.1% in 2011 to 5.5% this year, said the society.
This Equal Pay Day, it's time to get rid of the pay gap. Omitting the one region with a negative gender pay gap from its table tells us everything we need to know about the aims of this campaign - it is perpetuating a victim-hood narrative, deliberately leaving out information that should be cause for celebration.
