The article concerns a report from the Greater London Authority in England which states that women in the capital are still paid up to 23 percent less than men. At the launch of the Women in London's Economy 2008 report, Mayor Ken Livingstone said the situation had remained unchanged since 2005, and described gender employment inequality as crucial for the economy. The report also found that while 29% of London employers had conducted equal pay reviews in 2007, many did not meet the required definition set by the Equal Opportunities Commission.
