Massive gender pay gap for women in finance

Did someone say that women suffer no discrimination?? Here is a great article from Fortune dispelling this myth. Here is a quote: “The bank revealed that it pays female employees in the U.K. an average of 56% less than their male colleagues, a disparity that widens to 72% when year-end bonuses are factored in. A significant factor: Only about 10-12% of the highest-paid Goldman Sachs partners are women. If you’ve been following our coverage of the bank data coming out of the U.K., you’ll know these disturbing stats are pretty much on par with what we’re seeing at Goldman’s competitors.”
