At Les Petites Ambitieuses, we don’t hide it. We are a bit feminist and very idealistic.
DID YOU KNOW ? THIS DATA ON GENDER-TO-WORK INEQUALITIES MEANS FOR THEMSELVES.
Since March 1, 2019, companies with more than 1,000 employees must have an index to measure the gender pay gap and are obliged to publish it. On average, in France, there is a difference of 24% between the salary income of a man and a woman. Of course, the difference tends to narrow depending on the nature of the calculation and the parameters studied.
It should also be noted that there are many more women than men in part-time work, which necessarily leads to lower incomes.
However, when all the criteria are taken into account, sector of activity, age, socio-professional category, size of company and equivalent employment condition (full or part time), the average wage gap between men and women is 9.3%.
Inequalities are even more marked among executives where there is a gap of almost 20% between the remuneration of a man and that of a woman.
When analyzing the gap in terms of diploma, women with a BAC +3 and above earn on average 31% less than their male peers.

SHORT HEIGHT : AN ADDITIONAL FACTOR OF DISCRIMINATION AND INEQUALITY?
A Geneva team, by analyzing the BUS health data between 1995 and 2017 on 20,000 Genevans, highlighted a correlation between size, hierarchical position and socio-economic rank. This phenomenon has also been observed in the United States, the United Kingdom and Japan by the American psychologist Timothy Judge.
Obviously, this affects men more than women.
And there are several factors and assumptions that need to be further supported. And there are a few statistics missing in the field, especially women.
According to the various researchers, the discrimination is more based on the weight for the woman than on the size.
We would still be curious to have more data on the subject. Indeed; when you are little, you often look younger too. Also, do you have to fight more while being small in business than a standard size woman? We are listening to your testimonies.
TOWARDS A MORE EQUALITY GENERATION
At Les Petites Ambitieuses, we campaign for a fairer and more egalitarian society. Whether you are a woman, a man, whether you are small, tall, round, white, yellow or red, you should have the same rights and the same opportunities as everyone else.
Generation equality, Each for Equal: this is precisely the theme of International Women’s Rights Day for this year and the year 2020.
This is why on this occasion, on Designed by LPA, we created a series of clothes and products to spread the message a little more.
