Europe’s Gender-Pay Discrepancy

In some EU countries, the gap between men’s and women’s pay got even wider in recent years

Women in the European Union earned on average 16 percent less than their male colleagues in 2016, and for some, that pay gap has been getting worse. In Portugal, the disparity increased by 4.6 percentage points since 2011 and in Slovenia, it widened by 4.5 points. While the gap has narrowed across the bloc, it shrank just 0.6 point over the five-year period, according to Eurostat.
