It's been 44 years since the Equal Pay Act, but female bosses are still earning three-quarters as much as their male colleagues according to figures from the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).

Their National Management Salary Survey covers more than 68,000 professional UK workers. They found that, at the managerial level, there is a 23 per cent gender pay gap. For women over 40, the gap is worse: as well as a salary gap there is also a bonus gap, with the average bonus for a female director standing at £41,956, compared to £53,010 for men.
