Gender Pay Gap widens for women with degrees

Geoff Riley

24th August 2016

The pay gap in the UK between men and women with higher level qualifications has not changed for 20 years, despite several government initiatives. Gemma Tetlow, FT economics correspondent, uses Institute for Fiscal Studies research to examine the reasons for this. For higher educated women, the estimated loss of earnings for a year spent out of the labour market is 4% of pay.
