International Women's Day marred by pay gap

by TPN/Lusa, in News · 08-03-2018 10:20:00 · 1 Comments

International Women’s Day is being marked with events throughout Portugal that highlight women’s contribution to society where there are still gender inequalities in terms of wages and access to the labour market.

International Women's Day marred by pay gap

 

Eurostat data shows that Portugal is the European country with where the wage gap between the genders grew most between 2011 and 2016 (4.6%).

 

The United Nations organised the International Year of the Woman in 1975, and in 1977 proclaimed 8 March as International Women’s Day.

I am a little confused. In what way do dinners with male strippers and lots of alcohol "highlight women's contribution to society"?
