At Harrow London Borough Council, the median income of women was 13 pence more than the median income of men in 2018/19.

For every £1 that male staff earned, women earned £1.13. In addition, women’s mean hourly wage was 3.3% higher than men’s.

The data was sourced from the council’s annual gender pay gap report. 

Additionally, in examining the proportion of women in each pay quarter, women occupied 62.3% of the highest-paid jobs and 47.1% of the lowest-paid jobs.

As for the bonus pay gap, women earned £1.48 for every £1 that men earned when comparing median bonus pay. Their median bonus pay was 47.5% higher than men’s.

A new report was due for 2019/2020 by 30 March 2020, but a statement on the website reads “due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), enforcement of reporting deadlines does not apply to organisations in the 2019/20 reporting year.”

Why did students choose this topic?

A student said: “I chose this topic because I believe it is important for people to understand the reasons why there is gender inequality. Although gender inequality is generally abhorred, people are not always aware of the horrid impacts it has on society.”
