More women 'in full-time work than ever before'

The gender pay gap is narrowing, the Minister for Women and Equalities has said, after a report suggested that women managers were getting £9,000 less than men. Nicky Morgan said:

We're committed to delivering a long-term economic plan that works for women. That's why we are giving employees the right to request flexible working as well as introducing shared parental leave, and introducing tax-free childcare - also available for eligible parents who are self-employed.

Women can now make the right choice for them on how to balance work and families. As a result, we're seeing more women in full-time work than ever before and, although the gender pay gap remains too high, it is narrowing and for full-time workers under 40 is almost zero.
