Apparently, according to The Times, most of the UK’s biggest companies missed last week’s deadline to set out their plans to put more women on their boards. Only eight companies in the FTSE 100 have so far announced how they aim to meet the Government’s stated target of 25% of directors being women.


Of course, it couldn’t be in any way related to another recent report which stated that the gap between how much male and female managers are paid has widened by £500 to £10,546 in the past year. Female managers are now paid an average £31,895 per year, compared with £42,441 for men doing the same job.
