Benjamin Dux: ‘My wife has a degree in Computer Sciences. I have not. In my last job I earned as much as she does. In my next job I will earn more than she does now. And I am pretty sure if I had a degree, the gap would be even bigger. This is because I am a man, and she is a woman.’

# Women in Bulgaria earn 15% less than men. (article in Bulgarian, Eurostat data)
# Only 19% of the managers in the IT industry are women.
# 30% of the ICT specialists are women.
# Can you think of more…?
