Forty presentatrices of the BBC demands that something is done to the large differences in income between men and women in broadcasting.

Last week it was announced that Chris Evans, the highest paid employee at the BBC, an income of 2.5 million euro. He earns five times as much than Claudia Winkleman, who are between 500,000 and 570.000 euro for her work and thus the best-paid woman.

The incomes of the 96 employees who earn more than the British prime minister, were last week published. Two-thirds of them are male and most of them earn more than women in similar work.

“You’ve said that the gender pay gap in 2020 resolved, but the BBC know for years how big the problem is,” write the women in a letter to BBC boss Tony Hall. “We therefore call for action.”

The BBC wanted the salaries don’t really make public, but was forced to do so by the politics.
