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 [email protected] 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 [email protected] and we may do a post on the matter. Good luck!
