Iranian Women Face Uphill Battle Toward Equal Pay

◢ According to data compiled by IranSalary, the country's first specialized online platform for remunerations, Iranian women earned 27 percent less than their male counterparts in the previous Iranian year (ended March 2018). The wage gap has widened in recent years, rising from an average of 23 percent three years ago. For Aseyeh Hatami, Founder of IranTalent and IranSalary, bringing greater equality to Iran’s job market is a personal and professional mission.
