Conservatives launch campaign to help low-paid women

Penny Mordaunt to unveil initiative to help ‘every woman in UK do whatever she wants to do’

The government’s equalities department is to switch its focus away from getting high-paid women on company boards and towards helping lower-paid and unskilled women, Penny Mordaunt, the women and equalities minister, has announced.

Mordaunt will claim on Wednesday that there has been significant progress in closing the gender pay gap and getting more female executives on company boards, but women with poor skills and low levels of English were being left behind.
