The percentage of women in the British digital workforce is falling, according to the latest figures from the UK Commission for Employment and Skills.

The advisory body said on Tuesday that only 27 percent of employees in the digital sector were women, down from 33 percent in 2002. According to the Guardian, the UK average across industries is 47 percent.
