April 10 was selected for Equal Pay Day because it symbolizes how far into the year women in the United States must continue to work, to earn what men earned in the previous year. "We are demanding equal pay and we are demanding it now", James said.

One source of the especially polarising opinions that revolve around the gender pay gap is that it has become so heavily politicised. In other words, when comparing mean hourly rates, women earn approximately 84p for every £1 that men earn.

"Our current gender pay gap numbers make starkly clear the need for us to accelerate the pace of change within our company". One glance at the #MeToo campaign or the countless claims of sexual harassment at work quickly dispels that idea. There are many potential reasons for this, from a greater need for women to avoid failure to seem "good enough" as an employee, to a long-standing discipline and rule-following culture in females.

However, the study's main focus highlighted an overall lack of women in senior roles, with women accounting for less than 50 per cent of senior positions in every nation.

Apple revealed when filing its figures that 71pc of its top-earning employees were male and that men were paid more across the three subsidiaries it was required to report on, including Apple UK.

There may still be a lot of work to do to in achieving equal pay for women, however Riggins suggests ways in which everyone can help the cause through self-reflection.

So why do women earn less than men? Not only does the gap exists, but research points to a complicated mix of bias and occupational choices that create a pervasive cycle of lower earnings for women. Even when women do complete degrees, however, the problem persists - graduates can expect to earn nearly 23pc less than their male counterparts.
