“We need to make equal pay and equal opportunity for women and girls a reality so women’s rights are human rights”
The unacceptable inequality surrounding the gender pay gap pales in comparison to the inequities of the gender funding gap, at present only 10% of venture funding goes to female-led businesses and recently released figures show that if every woman who wanted to run, started a business then it could release a possible £10.1 billion boost to the UK economy.
