The UK has fallen six places to the 21st most gender equal nation.
Iceland, New Zealand and Scotland are all promoting a “wellbeing” agenda.
Iceland has become the first country in the world to make it illegal for men to earn more money than women for doing the same job
On International Women’s Day, Iceland announced their plans to force companies to pay all employees the same regardless of their gender, ethnicity, sexuality or nationality.
Women employees make 14 to 18 percent less than men in Iceland — a disparity that unions and women’s organisations have worked out means women are essentially working for free after 2:38 pm.
