Women and Media Jobs: Infographic

This Infographic on women in Media comes from " Visualeconomics "Among the seven regions, the ranking from highest number of women employed in upper management to the lowest numbers are as follows:
1.     Eastern Europe – 48%
2.     Nordic Europe – 43.4%
3.     Western Europe –  43.20%
4.     Sub-Saharan Africa – 41.7%
5.     The Americas – 36.8%
6.     Middle East and North Africa – 35.1%
7.     Asia and Oceana – 20.7%
If you combined, all the statistical data into one huge lump sum, then roughly 35.1% of women across the world are employed in positions of some authority.
But even if women are employed in larger numbers in a given region, does that mean their salaries are high too? How do they rate when stacked up against male colleagues in the same field? Well, let’s look at the average salary for women in top-level management in each region:

Nordic Europe – $109,230.20
Eastern Europe – $27,300.28
Western Europe – $374,324.69
The Americas – $89,242.23
Sub Saharan Africa – $28,300.34
Middle East and Northern Africa – $18,332.14
Asia and Oceania – $41,986.59


In most regions, women employed in top-level management earn significantly less than their male colleagues. In the Americas, for example, men earn an average of $115,934.37. The only regions that did not follow this trend is Asia and Oceania, where men earn, on average, approximately $6000 less per year than women. So while Eastern Europe may lead the pack when it comes to promoting female employees, they earn much less on average than men in the same fields – a trend that is echoed in almost every other continent
