Women's fashion and beauty brands among the worst gender pay gap offenders

Ikea reveals UK gender pay gap

William Reed also revealed a mean bonus pay gap of 28.8 per cent favouring men - although this changes to a 13 per cent gap favouring women when calculated using the median (or middle salary).

Within the first two years of working in a tech job, women in the USA ask for and receive 98 percent of what their male counterparts make in the same job at the same company, according to the report.

The report said: "At William Reed we are committed to achieving and sustaining a culture that is both fair and inclusive". "Most importantly, because equality for women is a right, and our whole society is the poorer as long as it remains unrealised".

More than 2,500 companies, equivalent to one in four, submitted their gender pay gap figures in the 48 hours before midnight.

On Monday, Walthamstow MP Stella Creasy will lead a group of politicians launching an online campaign called #PayMeToo, which aims to give working women advice on how to tackle any disparity.

Stoke City Football Club, for example, reported a mean gender pay gap of 92.5% - but that figure includes its highly paid male soccer stars. In South Korea, women earned 36.7 percent less than men in the same year.

At CNN's bureau in London, the mean gap showed women were paid slightly more on average.

It has a larger bonus gap than Yorkshire Water, due to the rules around reporting bonuses of part-time staff. But despite all the progress made since British women first won the right to vote a century ago, "major injustices still hold too many women back", she said.

Porton Down could not verify source of Salisbury nerve agent
Britain blames Russian Federation for the March 4 attack on Skripal and his daughter Yulia, a claim Moscow fiercely denies. British authorities suspect Skripal was poisoned by a Soviet-made nerve agent. "Okay, you expelled diplomats".

It's been an uncomfortable exercise for many companies, but advocates welcome the mandatory disclosures.

Figures for Thurrock make for interesting reading but we would advise clicking on the links for more information. However, that figure rises to 0.9 per cent when shift allowance is taken into consideration.

Earlier today Oath UK, the owner of HuffPost UK, revealed a pay gap of 23.29 per cent in favour of men.

According to The World Economic Forum, the overall gender pay gap in the United Kingdom and United Sates is similar.

"The gender pay gap exposes the fact that there are fewer women in high-paying jobs or technical roles, rather than a pay gap for like-for-like roles".

Over half of women (51 per cent) who have a bank account are likely to switch their bank, compared to 37 per cent of men. In every other division, men are paid significantly more.

She points to deeper cultural issues, such as underrepresentation of women in industries that are better paid, and a higher valuation of full-time workers, as some of the factors that companies should look into.
