Met Chief spurns equal pay?

A thoughtful commentary from Ruth Thomas on Cressida Dick’s decision to take a lower salary than she had been offered.

Media coverage has understandably focused on this as a matter of equal pay, but without recognising that equal pay isn’t just about women – all things being equal –receiving less than they should, but also about the elephant in the room: those situations in which men – all things being equal – get more than they should. It’s possible that Cressida Dick’s decision is an acknowledgement of the elephant in the room, in which case, more power to her elbow!
