Yay, it’s Equal Pay Day 2018…
Friday November 10 is Equal Pay Day 2018, the day in the year when women effectively start to work for free. Think that sounds sucky? Well, it is.

The most interesting part of my job is reading investor decks and business plans from people who are looking for investment. But of the 100 or so we receive every year, they almost exclusively come from men. Men who want investment to launch a new festival; men who want investment for an impossible app; men who want investment for the next sure to be Oscar-winning feature film. But women also need to be empowered and encouraged to put themselves forward for investment, to affect change on both sides of the coin.
