It’s not a cliché that we’re still talking about discrimination in 2018.
If we are to quote the latest Global Gender Gap Report , we haven’t progressed at all in the past ten years.
The UK joins Slovakia and the Czech Republic among the other EU states that had not produced any significant change in reducing the levels of inequality when it comes to income, education, health, workplace or political engagement.

Listen to the first episode of our new podcast, Faces of Discrimination, where we will be talking about ongoing conversations about discrimination that shouldn’t be forgotten. This one is on gender.
