The Gender Pay Gap Visualised

In July 2018, the BBC released its gender pay gap statistics.

This was followed by the gov.uk report published in August 2018, which exposed the gender pay gap statistics of over 10,667 UK companies.

Some of the results were shocking. One lingerie company even reported that its female employees were earning as much as 75.7% less per hour (on a median basis) than its male colleagues. But what does this really mean?

It’s difficult to comprehend what a 75.7% pay gap represents in everyday life. So this got us thinking – what does the pay gap look like when you apply it to everyday items? Well, that’s exactly what we’ve worked out.

If you click on a country, you will be able to find details on its gender pay gap and what the price difference would be if you applied it to everyday items like beer, McDonalds meals, coffee, internet bills, travel passes and petrol. We have also provided details on the day women technically ‘stop earning’, how much it has changed over the years and how European countries compare.
