EQUAL is BBC journalist Carrie Gracie's urgent call to arms - a powerful story about how women can fight for equal pay, and how men and employers can help them. Longlisted for the Financial Times Business Book of the Year Award 2019Gracie joined a group of high-profile BBC women who challenged the national broadcaster over equal pay after enforced disclosures revealed huge gaps between top men and women. Gracie had insisted on equal pay at the time of her China posting, and after trying with other BBC women to put things right through negotiation, she eventually resigned her post complaining publicly of a 'secretive and illegal' pay culture.

Her protest triggered a parliamentary inquiry into BBC pay, and after a protracted internal complaints process, she won an apology from the BBC and a settlement which she donated to the Fawcett Society. In Equal Gracie will tell her own story, explore why it is often so hard for women to assert their value in the workplace and give practical guidance on what women, men and employers can do to achieve equality for this and future generations of women. 'Gracie pulls no punches in this account of how she clashed with the BBC over gender-pay inequality .

. . Inspiring' Sunday Times '[An] absorbing account of Gracie's gruelling battle to challenge unequal pay' Financial Times 'Pragmatic and honest' Mail on Sunday
