Rebecca Jarman and Julia Hanks were both dedicated employees of supermarket giant Wilko when they heard their male colleagues bantering about the noughts on their pay slips. What happens next is an on-going David and Goliath legal battle between two Welsh mothers and a multi-million pound business. Both inspiring women join our presenter Kate Gerbeau, Sam Smethers, Chief Executive of The Fawcett Society, lawyer Sarah Hexter and GMB Union Rep, Paul McGuire to discuss the grim reality of fighting for equal pay.
