‘Gracie tells the story of her struggle and eventual triumph as a way of encouraging us, of changing our society, of giving us all courage . . . Equal is a very important book’ Sandi Toksvig
Equal pay has been the law for half a century. But women often get paid less than men, even when they’re doing equal work.
Mostly they don’t know because pay is secret. But what if a woman finds out? What should she do?
In Equal, award-winning journalist Carrie Gracie covers her own experience of holding her employer – the BBC – to account and investigates why we’re still being paid unequally. Equal will open your eyes, fix your resolve and give you the tools to act – and act now.
