Well, apparently so, if a recent report from the UN is to be believed. Rasghida Manjoo, a UN special rapporteur has conducted a survey and concluded that sexism in the UK is more ‘in your face’ than even countries like India.
That is hard to believe. Are we really that bad? I do hold the view that in terms of gender equality we have begun to go lose ground over the last decade. No progress has been made for some time, witness the lack of female MPs, women on boards, pay differentials and so on.
Read and hear what Rasghida said here, in a BBC interview, and make up your own minds.
