It’s amazing! Looking at how women went in strike for equal pay. How you were handed your cards if you got pregnant. How all manager adverts had ‘He will need to . . . Even by 1975, in factories they simply amended contracts so that they could still pay men more.
By the time I started work, it was equal pay in my job, but the history in this program is both fascinating, and shocking.

Yes I think so, going by the accents. I didn’t see the start so I don’t know exactly. I was really impressed with the effect their efforts have had on my life.

It's sounds like a programme I watched a while ago. About women working in the Ford car factory in Dagenham striking for equal pay
