How fair is Britain?
Progress in closing the gender pay gap appears to be "grinding to a halt", according to a report by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC). What does "fairness" mean to you?
The commission said that on average women earned 16% less than men, widening to 27% for women aged 40.
Among other inequalities identified by the EHRC were that girls of all ethnic backgrounds outperformed boys in education, and those from wealthier social classes live seven years longer than those from less privileged backgrounds.
Commission chairman Trevor Phillips said there was a risk of society being divided by inequality.
In their conference speeches this year, the three main party leaders all discussed the concept of fairness, and how to make Britain a fair society.
Do you think Britain is a fair country? Have you been discriminated against? How can the gap in inequality be closed? Can equality be ever achieved?
