Women still earn less money than men in most developed countries around the world. The gender pay gap is measured as the difference between male and female earnings as a percentage of male earnings. It is most pronounced in South Korea where the percentage difference in full-time earnings between men and women is 36.6 percent. At 5.6 percent, New Zealand has the narrowest gender pay gap of any OECD country.
This chart shows the percentage difference in full-time earnings between men/women in selected OECD nations.
