During her visit to Estonia, Zita Gurmai, PES Women President met with Social Affairs Minister Helmen Kütt and discussed the worrying existing gender pay gap in Estonia.

They agreed that we can not longer ignore the gender pay gap in Estonia (30%) or anywhere else across Europe, where on average we witness a difference of 16% between women and men.
