Subject: Women are earning more than men
Women are earning more than men in some public sector organisations - but only in the lower-paid grades, according to new research by the BBC.
Female clerical and admin staff are taking home bigger salaries than their male colleagues in 14 out of 17 public sector bodies which responded to a Freedom of Information (FOI) request about pay.
Figures showed that, on average, women in these grades were earning up to £350 a year more than men.
But higher up the career ladder it's a more familiar story, with male earnings outstripping females' and men outnumbering women in the senior management roles.
