Our thanks to Mike P for this piece in the “Women / Lifestyle” section of The Daily Telegraph, two days ago. Extracts:
In 2018, women effectively worked “for free” from November 10 until the end of the year because of the gender pay gap. Women are also paid less than half than men at some of Britain’s major companies, according to recent gender pay gap figures.
The theme for IWD 2019 is #BalanceForBetter, a nod to the growing global push for professional and social equality. Described as a “business issue”, the aim of the theme is to encourage gender balance in boardrooms, in the media and in wealth as a way for economies to thrive. It echoes the aims of the Telegraph’s Women Mean Business campaign – which launched on IWD last year to help close the funding gap for female entrepreneurs in Britain.
