Show Me The Way

Mar 17, 2024

Journalist Josie Cox is a leading authority on the relationship between economics, business and gender. In this episode of Show Me the Way, the author of "Women, Money, Power: The Rise and Fall of Economic Equality" talks about the history of women’s fight for economic emancipation and the barriers to gender equality that still exist today.

We discuss the untold stories of female financial pioneers, sexism in the workplace and how Covid has impacted the gender pay gap. Despite the harrowing reality of the data, Josie’s book is a call to action to unite in collective effort against gender inequality and create a fairer, better workplace for us and for future generations. As she tells me, “the book I wrote is called ‘Women, Money, Power’- but it’s not a book that is for women, it is a book that is for everyone".
