The greater numbers we have the more change we can make happen... so ideally we won't have to wait until we are retirement age to see equality in the workplace.

The UK's gender pay gap — the difference in how much men and women are paid hourly on average — rose from 19.7% in 2014 to 20.8% in 2015, the biggest increase of any Europe's main economies. The latest figures show the UK's gap was bigger than the EU's average pay gap, which stood at 16.3%, and the UK performed fifth worst for gender pay equality of all the major European economies. Germany was third worst, at 22% in 2015, while the Czech Republic's gap was about 23% and Estonia's was about 26%. According to EU figures, the gap is equivalent to women continuing to work for the remainder of the year but not being paid after early November.
