It is common knowledge and obvious example of sexual inequality that men get paid more than women for doing same job. One industry in which reverse is true is modeling. gender pay gap for male models and their female counterparts is gigantic. well-known modeling agency has claimed that male models are paid as much as 75 per cent less than female models. Elizabeth Rose from UK's Premier Models said women could be paid £40,000 ($52,000) for appearing in top fashion show, while men could only get £10,000 ($13,000). Ms Rose said: "I think it's only industry where men get paid less than women. It's unfair for men, [but] I wouldn't say it's female empowerment."

Rose says situation is slowly changing and pay is getting better for men. She explained that advertisers are more willing to promote men's products as men are getting more into fashion. She said: "More and more, male models are being used for grooming products. Men are taking lot more care of themselves. Generally, in 2000s, it's fine to take long time doing your hair. It's fine [for men] to use moisturizer [and] wear make-up." One consolation for men is that they are able to work as model for longer than women. Rose said: "Men have longer career path, definitely. male models that make most are probably in their 30s." Female models tend to make their money in their twenties.
