A massive 51 of women believe they are underpaid for the work that they do and that over a third (39 of the men we asked were in favour of boardroom quotas - perhaps understandably given that a gender-based quota could be construed as disadvantaging male workers.

What do you think? Does gender equality in the workplace exist? We'd love to hear your opinions.

FYI, we weren't just interested in boardroom gender politics - we also found out a heap of other interesting things so here are our highlights:

Our career crushes

The woman whose career we covet the most is Karren Brady (7) and Hillary Clinton (5 of women aged 45-54.

Our editor Libby had this to say:

"Women are still acutely aware that there is a lot of work to be done before they're on a truly equal footing with men in the workplace and it's particularly interesting to see the discrepancy this study has highlighted between men and women's views on exactly how prevalent inequality is at work.

"At we know how important having a career is to women of all ages and this women's census has given us a fascinating insight into the views of British women in this and other areas. It is particularly interesting to see how liberal women of all ages are about sex and that it remains a priority to women whatever their age."
