Despite the existence of regulations that promote equality in the workplace, gender discrimination is still widespread. When it comes to earnings and employment rates, women still do not match up to men. The average salary of women is 72 to 88% that of men, even when variables like age, education, job tenure and position level are considered (Crosby & Stockdale, 2007). In many countries, the glass ceiling is always present for women and the salary differences are considerable compared to men. It is also more likely for women to be stuck in low-paying but more secure positions.
