What can be done to com­bat gen­der dis­crim­i­na­tion in the work­place? Lind­sey Millen of Close the Gap tells us:

What can you do?

• Arm your­self with in­for­ma­tion about the law and your rights, e.g. equal pay law and the right to flex­i­ble work­ing. • Don’t be afraid to ask for flex­i­ble work­ing or shared parental leave, and chal­lenge your em­ployer if it’s de­clined. • Don’t hes­i­tate to re­port ha­rass­ment and dis­crim­i­na­tion to­wards your­self or other fe­male col­leagues, though it can be scary. Your trade union can sup­port you.
