Mother has been busy helping Elle and Feminist Times bring feminism kicking and screaming into 2013.
As part of Elle's November issue, we created a campaign to address the still massive pay gap between men and women: www.makethempay.co.uk.
British women earn 15% less than their male colleagues, on average, and current trends suggest this gap is unlikely to close until 2057. Yet while women know there is a pay disparity, we don’t know what to do about it. We don’t talk about salaries. Feminist Times and Elle want to offer women a simple challenge to make them think about the pay gap and how it affects them. If he does the same job, ask him his salary. It’s something everyone woman can do. Once you know the answer, you can act.
