20th November 2022 marked UK Equal Pay Day. The EIS film highlights the prevalent undervaluing of professions where women represent the majority of the workforce.

This includes teaching (compared to other graduate professions) and the disproportionate impact of the cost-of-living crisis on women across key areas of the public sector (Engender, 2022; Living Wage Foundation, 2022)
