  2. The limitations of the 1970 act
  3. Potential solutions to the gender earning gap in the workplace

According to ACAS, women working full time in the public sector earn 13.5% less than their male counterparts. Even more strikingly, women working part-time earn 35.5% less than their male counterparts working full-time. Thus, despite the Equal Pay Act 1970 (EPA hereafter), the existence of a gender gap in the work place remains an everyday reality. The principle of equal remuneration for equal work between men and women was officially expressed for the first time in the 1951 General Conference of the International Labor Organization. In the European Union, this principle was enshrined in article 119 (now article 141) of the treaty of Rome of 1957.
