Apple has revealed its gender pay gap figures, showing that on some measures it actually pays women better than men.

United Kingdom companies employing more than 250 people were legally required to disclose the pay gaps between hourly wages for male and female workers. The deadline for public sector firms already passed last Friday. The gender pay gap in the United Kingdom is 18.1 per cent. United Kingdom becomes the first countries to require companies to publish their figures.

Many of the UK's largest print companies have revealed their gender pay cap data as the government's deadline looms.

"We're proud that many women at HP UK hold positions of significant influence and impact".

Richard Flint, Yorkshire Water's chief executive, said: "Although our gender pay gap figures are significantly below the national average, we are in no way complacent with our current levels of gender diversity".

The company's United Kingdom chief Ronan Harris said in a statement: "We're not proud of these numbers".

The airline pays women 71.8% less than men on average - when comparing median hourly rates, for every £1 men earn, women earn just 28p.

Anduntil past year, equal pay advocates expected the United States would require companies to do the same.

Under the rules, companies have to disclose the percentage of women in different pay bands and the general trend is clear: most companies have higher proportion of men in top paid roles, while women tend to dominate the lowest tier.

Can you guess at what age women start earning less than men?

The median United Kingdom national average gender pay gap is 18.4%, with different print companies falling on either side of the line. Perhaps a large gender pay gap could tip the balance? At the University of East London (UEL) women earned 8.7pc less then men per hour on average.

"The most important thing to come out of this is the conversation that this will provoke", Bazely said. "We are also working on our recruitment strategy to attract more women to higher graded posts", he added. It said it had addressed hundreds of cases of pay unfairness.

Over the next 12 months the Council will be following an action plan to try and tackle the issue.

How is the pay gap calculated?

Brady, who has made a documentary on the issue for Channel 5, also argued that far fewer women than men negotiate pay rises, stating: "There's an issue that women have this fear factor where they don't have the confidence to ask, and they are sort of grateful for the job and do not want to rock the boat".

Mrs May also took the opportunity to congratulate firms which, she said, have taken concrete steps towards levelling the playing field for pay.
