The York Union warmly invites you to attend our fourth external speaker event of 2019 as we welcome Kate Andrews for an address titled:'The nature and causes of the gender wage gap.'
Last year Britain marked one hundred years since women were granted the franchise. A century later, women continue to strive for gender equality. One of the most hotly contested gender issues is the gender wage gap.
Despite the Equal Pay Act 1970, many assert that women continue to earn less than men. In her address, Kate will discuss the wage apparent disparity between men and women, what causes it, and how it can be changed.
Kate Andrews is Associate Director of the Institute of Economic Affairs. She oversees the IEA’s Media Centre, which includes its communications, public affairs, and digital output.
Kate regularly features across the national media, including on BBC’s Any Questions and BBC’s Question Time. She writes for The Daily Telegraph, The Times, Spectator Coffee House, and writes a weekly column for CityAM.
The address will include a Q&A during which time audience members can pose questions to Kate. Our events are as intelligent as our audience so please join us for what should be a lively and engaging evening!
