Midday today – BBC Radio 4 ‘You and Yours’

My thanks to the gentleman who’s just made me aware of an interesting episode of the BBC Radio 4 show You and Yours, to be broadcast at midday today. From the associated website http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03c3cn0 (the emphasis is mine):

David Cameron’s Conservative party has promoted several female MPs as part of a ministerial reshuffle. We often hear about women in business and politics but we want to hear from people who have experienced either sexism or positive
discrimination in as many workplaces as possible. Maybe you’re a man who feels you’ve missed out on a job because the other candidate was given special
treatment for being a woman. Even if that’s the case, does it matter? And what about pay? More than four decades after the Equal Pay Act promised to pay women the same as men for doing the same job, many are still fighting to get a fair
wage. Are you one of them? We were told the glass ceiling would be shattered but have you found it still exists? 03700 100 444 is the number to call, email youandyours@bbc.co.uk or text us on 84844

Unfortunately I won’t personally be able to call into the programme, but I invite you to do so, if you have a suitable story to relate. If you manage to get onto the programme – call well in advance with your story, then they may call you back during the programme – or you have an email read out, please let me know mike@j4mb.org.uk and we may do a post on the matter. Good luck!

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
