Friday 10th November marks a date when women in the workplace across the UK should be packing up their desks and setting their "out of office" for the rest of the year.
Due to the scale of the gender pay gap, women effectively work for free from November 10th for the rest of the calendar year.
New data this year has also revealed that the gender pay gap is growing for 20-something women. Figures show that the gap is five times greater than it was six years ago, so from the very start of their careers females are being paid less than men - disadvantaged from the offset.
A bleak outlook for young women across the UK, as campaigners estimate it will take around a century to close the gender pay gap.
Gender rights campaigners said the data highlighted a “national scandal” created by the same power imbalance that allowed sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace. They warned that the UK was going backwards in addressing the issue, with the gulf widening for young women.
