David Cameron’s equal pay action is a welcome surprise – but it won’t close the gap

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

David Cameron caught some by surprise when he announced a new consultation by the government equalities office aimed at “closing the gender pay gap”. Although the Conservative party’s 2015 election manifesto included a pledge to “achieve full gender equality”, many of the proposals under this heading looked more like vague promises than explicit commitments to action.
