Carrie Gracie on equal pay A Podcast of One's Own with Julia Gillard

    • Politics

UK journalist Carrie Gracie famously resigned from her post as BBC China editor when she discovered her male equivalent was being paid almost twice as much as her. She talks to Julia about fighting for her beliefs in the face of a hugely stressful and belittling pay dispute, which she describes as worse than cancer.


Earnings from the podcast will go back into funding for the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership, furthering the work they do to create a world in which being a woman is no barrier to being a leader.
