The gender pay gap: Light at the end of the funnel

I saw this in the Economist, and it makes for interesting reading.

The average British woman’s salary is 29% lower than the average man’s. But women make just 1% less than men who work at the same company, at the same level and with the same responsibilities. Across Europe, the gap is similarly small. This is not to say that the labour market is free of sexism. But it suggests that the main problem is not unequal pay for equal work, but that women end up in lower-ranking jobs at lower-paying firms.
