Once best known for her China reporting. Carrie Gracie hit the headlines in early 2018 for another passion: equal pay for women. She publicly resigned her role as BBC China editor over unequal pay at the BBC and her protest triggered a parliamentary inquiry. After a yearlong dispute, she won a BBC apology and gave away her back pay to fund legal advice for other victims of pay discrimination. The messages of frustration and despair she received from women all over the UK drove Gracie to investigate the wider questions, and her book Equal is the result. She’ll be telling her own story and the story of every woman, as well as employers and men – as well as women – what they can do to change things for this generation and the next.
