While women working in radio are better qualified than men (73% of women have degrees, compared to 60% men), they’ll be paid less – earning on average £2,200 less each year.
They are also less likely to make it to the top. Women make up just 34% of senior managers and only 17% at Board level. This is much lover than in television, where 29% of board members are women.
Older women are less well represented too – 9% of women in radio are 50+, compared to 19% of men.
And 16% of women in radio have dependent children, compared to 25% of men, suggesting that
many women leave when they have children.
(I want to research for and with these people)
