East Dunbartonshire is the Best Place in the UK for Women, Apparently

By Kim Snaith on at

If you're a woman and fed up of falling victim to that gender pay gap in your local area, you may want to consider packing your bags and heading for Scotland: East Dunbartonshire has been voted the best place for women to live in the UK thanks to a recent BBC Radio 4 poll.

Aside from measuring the average pay gap between men and women, a number of other factors were taken into account including cost of living, education, general happiness and wellbeing of the population, as well as environmental factors such as green spaces in the area. 380 local authorities were considered in the poll, and the Scottish region that borders Glasgow came out on top.

In constrast, the London borough of Islington came out on bottom. Its housing prices are some of the highest in the UK, and while it has one of the highest average salaries in the country, it also has one of the most severe gender pay gaps.

You can see the full roundup of the results of the poll on the BBC website.
