Sarah Champion: Brexit is a crucial moment in our nation’s history – so let’s use it to be ambitious on equalities | LabourList
Given that equality is so central to EU law, and given the emphasis that has been placed by the prime minister on equality since her speech outside No 10 when she first entered Downing Street, it came as a surprise to me that the word “equality” does not appear once in the government’s white paper.

There is a brief mention of women’s rights in relation to maternity leave, but no mention of race, disability or sexuality and gender identity.

This cannot be credibly perceived as a deal that works for everyone in Britain if women, BAME, disabled people and LGBT communities aren’t even referenced in the white paper.

New York Times fights to limit criticism over apparent Abramson pay disparity | Media | theguardian.com
$475,000 vs $559,000 [...] The publication of the salary figures, which could not be independently confirmed but which neither the Times nor any of the protagonists denied, came as the newspaper fought waves of controversy over Abramson’s sudden dismissal. The revelations over the pay gap contributed to charges that sexism was at play. The failure of Sulzberger to articulate a justification for Abramson’s summary dismissal other than her style of managing the newsroom also led to charges that a man would not have been treated the same way. [...] The Times was playing damage control in its newsroom Thursday in an effort to reassure women in particular that Abramson had not been discriminated against. [...] [Fired her because they] didn’t think it was appropriate for her to take a warlike footing.” - http://nyr.kr/1mYSQG6 "brusque manner" SRSLY!? & http://nyr.kr/1hTB2J1 "ushed out for being “pushy,” a gendered critique." + http://nyr.kr/1g9SGgs
