Women in their twenties smash glass ceiling to reverse pay gap
By Sean O'Grady

British women in their twenties have smashed the glass ceiling and are now being paid more than their male counterparts – reversing the traditional "gender gap" in pay for the first time. This is the only age group for which this is true.

The social revolution taking place among the nation's twentysomethings is being driven by a rise in the number of women attending university and their subsequent entry into the better paid professions, notably the law: around 63 per cent of solictors under the age of 30 are female.

But female success in their twenties is not sustained because many leave employment to start families and do not return to work, or at least do not return to the same sort of full-time employment at the same levels of pay.
Recent legislation protecting post-maternity employment rights may erode the still marked differential in male and female pay for those further on in their careers. Full-time working men in their thirties are paid 2.9 per cent more than women, and this rises to a hefty 16.1 per cent for men in their forties. More More
