Czech Republic -Women earn 16% less than men -February 21, 2013

The Czech statistical office (CZSO/CSU) has published a report on the gender pay gap between 1996 and 2011. Results indicate that women’s gross median income was only 84% of men’s. In 2011 women earned 22,389 Koruna (€ 874) a month on average, 5,845 Koruna (€ 228) less than men. Experts and women’s organisations cite differences in remuneration between male and female dominated sectors as well as a lack of women in top positions, as the main explanations for the persisting gender pay gap.
