Gender pay gap decreasing… but still won't level out for 118 years

Women are now earning what men did in 2006, according to the World Economic Forum (WEF).

Their latest study, ‘The Global Gender Gap Report 2015’, said the average female wage is now $11,000 (£7,200), which was the average male wage in 2006 (back then, the female comparative salary was $6,000 (£4,000)). The average male now takes home $21,000 (£14,000).
