Britain is a textbook case of how growing inequality leads to economic crisis. The years before the crash were marked by a sharp rise in remortgaging and the growth of 0 percent balance transfer credit cards. By 2008 the UK had the highest ratio of household debt to GDP of any major economy.
You just wish sometimes that people would treat you like a human being rather than seeing your gender first and who you are second.
I suspect there are people in all walks of life who need to be dragged into the 21st century in terms of attitudes towards women.
I think being a mother helps keep your feet on the ground. There's very little dignity in parenthood. It's a great leveller.
As long as the number one worry for people, keeping them up at nights, is whether they're going to have a job in the morning, then they are less likely to resist unfair changes, or unfair treatment, or cuts in real pay at work.
