Only one in four women workers are confident of receiving a pay rise over the next year, a new study has shown.
The figure is 3% lower than earlier this year, and compares with 40% of men expecting a higher salary.
The survey of 2,000 adults for jobs site Glassdoor also showed that women were less likely than men to leave a job because of low pay.
Jon Ingham of Glassdoor said: "Salaries are starting to move up but women risk getting left behind.
"While the economic news generally is more positive, this is a worrying development if it means female employees are being held back in their career and men are being treated more favourably."
