At universities women only work 1 hour less a week as compared to men. Nevertheless they receive on average a lower salary as compared to male colleagues of the same age with the same job level. Among professors this difference is a shocking 438 euro per month (see LNVH report). Although we do not know the exact numbers (yet) for Leiden University, probably a similar problem holds for women at our Faculty of Science.
