Slovenia, it seems, is leading the way in the fight to attain gender equality in Europe, with women in the country earning only 2.5% less than men. It is closely followed by Serbia, where the gap is also not so insurmountable at 3.3%.
And that's where the potential for equality appears to tail off. The likes of Italy (6.7%), Poland (6.4%) and Romania (9.7%) aren't bad but the disparity increases elsewhere. As for the rest, Germany is also surprisingly high with a 22.4% gap, as are the likes of Austria (23.4), the Czech Republic (22%) and Slovakia (21.5%). As for the worst, it's Estonia (30%) with a truly massive wage disparity.
Sadly, the glass ceiling remains thick in Europe, despite some emerging cracks. The next step is the hardest - to break through!
