Why are so few women in positions of power? Why are government, business, the institutions, and so much of British life dominated by men?
Please join the High Pay Centre and authors Eva Tutchell and John Edmonds to discuss their new book Man-Made. The book is based on over one hundred interviews with successful women and seeks to discover what it takes for a women to get to the top. Man Made provides a rigorous analysis of the inadequacy of current policy and proposes a more thoroughgoing programme to achieve fairness and inequality.
