Debate - Women and the Economy

I raised issues with the gender pay gap in a debate on Women and the Economy in Parliament.

Joan Ryan (Enfield North) (Lab): Is my hon. Friend aware that, according to the United Nations, on the current rate of progress, it will take Britain another 70 years to close the gender pay gap? Sadly, the Prime Minister’s daughters may be disappointed. Does she agree that that is totally unacceptable?

Kate Green: My right hon. Friend is right. I suspect that neither of us has 70 years to wait for the gap to be equalised. I shall return to that point later.
