Breaking news! The gender pay gap is narrowing.

According to a new study from Glassdoor's Economic Research team, the unadjusted pay gap between men and women has been improving. The report, Progress on the Gender Pay Gap: 2019, reveals that although significant pay gaps remain between men and women, the pay gap has narrowed slightly in the U.S., U.K., France, and Australia, showing improvement since Glassdoor's 2016 study. The 2019 study, which offers new gender pay gap data on Canada, the Netherlands, and Singapore, is based on more than half a million salary reports shared on Glassdoor by employees over the past three years, and includes pay data down to specific job title and industry.
