Some of the BBC's most prominent female journalists and TV presenters are banding together to demand that the broadcaster fix its wide gender pay gap immediately rather than in several years as management has proposed. TV personalities including Clare Balding, Victoria Derbyshire and others wrote an open letter Sunday to the BBC's top manager saying that plans to resolve the company's gender pay gap by 2020 must be accelerated. BBC responded in a statement that it has made "significant changes" in recent years but needs to do more to close the pay gap.Many BBC men were also found to be receiving higher salaries than women in comparable jobs.The BBC said Sunday that when annual figures are published next year substantial progress on salary equity will have been made.
