My Mum and Women like her lived through incredible times
During the late 1960s and early 1970s the Race Relations Act and the Equal Pay Act arrived.
Legislation meant that Black women could not be excluded from the job market by employers.
Which meant access to greater job choice.
Jobs with prospects.
Jobs which paid Women equally for their labour.
These changes didn’t happen by chance. They didn’t make everything perfect.
They did come about because Women and Men chose to challenge inequality.
Great journeys begin with the first important step.
Happy International Women’s Day!
