Description

Equal Pay and a New Working Women’s Charter

Forty years ago, a group of British women launched the Working Women’s Charter – a list of ten demands that they believed would address gender inequalities at work. Four decades on, only four of those original ten demands have been met. Challenges around, for example, equal pay, the living wage, child care and boardroom equality still remain.

Dr Burchell, Reader in the Department of Sociology, will speak on the impact that equal pay legislation and work has had over the last few decades in the UK. He will also discuss the issues that exist around gender segregation in employment and the differences between men’s and women’s life cycle and careers.

Gina Warren, E&D Consultant, University of Cambridge will talk about the University’s activity around equal pay and Theresa Bateman from Cambridge City Council will showcase work the Council have been doing on the living wage and fair pay.
