The existence of a gender pay gap is regularly asserted and used as evidence that women are still getting a raw deal in the labour market. But others say it is a myth that women earn less than men for the same work – and even that until the age of 30, women on average out-earn their male counterparts. What role do women’s choices play in their pay-packets? Or do women need quotas as a corrective to discrimination?

The speakers are Vicky Pryce, author of ‘Why Women Need Quotas’; Catrin Griffiths, editor of ‘The Lawyer’; Charlotte Gill, freelance journalist; Dr Joanna Williams, author of ‘Academic Freedom in an Age of Conformity.’ The chair is Alison Small, CEO, Production Guild of Great Britain.
