The Wage Disparities for Women at BBC
Carrie Gracie, former China Editor at the BBC, in alliance with other BBC Women, is actively working toward true equal pay. Gracie says, “My problem will be resolved by an acknowledgment that my work was of equal value to the men who I served alongside as an international editor.” The BBC women sought to build a coalition of like-minded women to expose the wage gap and achieve reform for their efforts. Lauren Collins, author of the article, goes incredibly in depth into what the wage gap actually means, not just at the BBC, but across the board. Collins uses Gracie as a model to illustrate all the aspects involved with women coming together for the fight against inequality in the workplace, including the risks and emotional burdens.
