This introductory chapter first sets out the purpose of the book, which is to trace the attempts made by UK governments, frequently under pressure from the EC, to improve women's positions at work. Its primary focus is on women's pay but, given that part of women's wage disadvantage stems from their position within the workforce, it also looks at the attempt made by the Sex Discrimination Act to tackle the wider issues of discrimination at work. The chapter then outlines the present state of that UK equal pay law.

Keywords: equal pay law; wages; women; Sex Discrimination Act
