Where are all the women over 50?
Good for Olenka Frenkiel who has spoken out about the way older women are treated by the BBC. An award-winning reporter with over 30-years experience, she was forced out of the organization but refused to sign a gagging clause. Two years later, Frenkiel is finally able to speak out. This story is featured on the front page of today’s Guardian, I know making a stand against ageism and sexism is not easy, but we need more women like Olenka Frenkiel and Miriam O’Reilly (who won an employment tribunal against the Beeb) to tell it like it is. And we need the BBC to set a better example.
