One in two young women in UK has degree

DSC_0518

Interesting stats out from OECD, one in two young women in the United Kingdom now holds a university-level degree. The good news is that this is an historic high for the UK, and higher than among 25-34 year-old women in France (47%), Germany (31%) and the US (48%).

The depressing news is that on average, adult women in the UK earn 20% less than men, regardless of their education level, a difference similar to the OECD average.
