TAIPEI, Taiwan -- A tally by the Ministry of Finance revealed an obvious glass ceiling for women in executive roles.

According to statistics compiled by the ministry, around one thousand earned more than NT$1 million per month from a single job in 2015. The majority of these extremely highly-paid individuals were employees of local listed firms but only 16.8 percent of them were women.

The discrepancy showed that men still had an advantage over women in securing executive positions in big companies in Taiwan, finance ministry officials said.

The data also showed that the number of people earning more than NT$100,000 increased from 320,000 in 2011 to 390,000 in 2015, or roughly 7 percent to 8 percent of the working population.
