VILNIUS - The results of a recent survey have found that Lithuanian women earn a total of 18 percent less than men.

The results, which were made public by the National Student Agency on Wednesday, also found that the wage gap was not getting any smaller.

Interestingly, the survey found that the majority of Lithuanian citizens -- some 65 percent -- believed that there was no gender wage gap in the country.

In the EU, the average gender wage gap is 15-20 percent.
