The Equal Opportunities Revolution: Books & Buns with James Heartfield

19:05

B&B James thumb

In discussion with author James Heartfield on his latest book, volunteers learn how equal opportunities spread from the fringes of the ‘loony left’ to the boardroom.  From his historical research, James explains that policies which advanced the standing of women and people of colour coincided with setbacks for workers as a whole.  Fashionable discussions of the gender pay gap and diversity are called into question and it becomes clear that racism and sexism are really at an all-time low. In fact, James compellingly points out equal pay and opportunities have arrived.
