BBC equal pay row

The Week - - News | Politics -

The dis­pute over equal pay at the BBC was reignited this week when Car­rie Gra­cie re­signed as its China ed­i­tor. In an open let­ter, Gra­cie ac­cused the BBC of hav­ing a “se­cre­tive” and dis­crim­i­na­tory pay cul­ture. She had, she said, re­jected a pay rise that would have put her salary up to £180,000 a year, be­cause it still would not put her on a level with the BBC’S male in­ter­na­tional edi­tors. The Equal­i­ties and Hu­man Rights Com­mis­sion said that it was seek­ing an­swers from the cor­po­ra­tion, in ad­vance of a pos­si­ble in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
