Sexism in the City still rules OK
A laddish culture translates into lower pay and fewer opportunities to advance, an investigation finds

Britain’s financial institutions are bastions of sexism in which women work long hours for less pay and in segregated conditions, according to a far-reaching investigation of discrimination in the City released today.
The findings, described as “shocking” by the head of the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC), show a financial sector dominated by a “macho” or “lads’ culture” where bonuses paid to women are just a fifth of those received by men.
Women working in banks and other financial institutions told the EHRC that workers who become pregnant routinely face redundancy, and that recruitment was all about “jobs for the boys”. Clients were often “entertained” in lap-dancing clubs, hostess bars or at sports such as golf, from which women were excluded.
