Women's and men's average earnings in leadership positions in Iceland 2018

Although Iceland was the first country in the world to enforce equal pay for men and women, and despite Iceland being one of the top places in the world to work for women, a clear gender pay gap still existed in 2018. That year, the gender pay gap favoring the men was the highest among directors and chief executives. The exception to the pay gap visual in this statistic, was the pay given to senior government officials. In this sector, women were paid more than men in 2018.
