Gender equality and work: A relatively small improvement


As of 2021, the gender wage gap was 11.9% on average across the OECD. This means that in the OECD, on average, a woman working full-time makes around 88 cents for every dollar or euro a full-time working man makes at median earnings. This represents only a relatively small improvement since 2010, when the gender wag gap stood at 14%.
