Gender-based income disparities in different countries have never been a secret, but what is new in the UK now is that female directors serving in the UK’s leading companies are more likely than their male counterparts. About three-quarters are paid less than their counterparts. 

According to a study released yesterday, a female director of one of the companies listed on London’s FTSE 100 Index earns an average of 7 237,000 a year.
