Women earn about half as much as men, said the World Economic Forum, reporting a gender pay gap of 51 percent in 2018 ."It's still a long way from parity, and it's still a long way from reaching a point where women and men are being paid the same for the same job," said report co-author Saadia Zahidi, head of WEF's Center for the New Economy and Society.There were fewer women working this year than men, mostly due to the lack of childcare, which kept women from jobs or from progressing to senior roles, according to the annual index ranking 149 countries on their progress to close the gender gap.Last year, WEF said women would achieve economic equality in 217 years, the widest gap in almost a decade.
