Resignation of Carrie Gracie, BBC China Editor, Resurfaces Pay Row
” In a statement, the broadcaster said an independent audit of pay showed “no systemic discrimination against women,” and added
that it was “performing considerably better than many” other organizations that had published their gender pay figures. that It gives courage to other, less prominent women to come forward.
Supported by By Amie Tsang LONDON — The journalist who resigned as the BBC’s China editor to protest the broadcaster’s gender pay gap said on Monday
that she was offered a raise before quitting, but one that still did not bring her to the level of her male peers.
Ms. Adler described Ms. Gracie’s resignation as a “huge loss,” and Sarah Montague, a presenter on the broadcaster’s flagship morning radio program, “Today,” said in a tweet
that she was “brave and brilliant.” “Not sure what is so hard to understand about #equalpay for equal work,” Ms. Montague wrote.
In an interview on BBC radio, she said she had filed an official complaint after the pay data showed
that two of her male peers were paid far more than she was.
All four women were among the 42 who called on the BBC to take action to close the gender pay gap. The debate over the gender pay gap has grown louder in Britain in recent
months, particularly after the government required large companies to publish the average salaries of the men and women they employ.
