On the Rag: We went back to 1972 to talk Equal Pay and flared jeans

In a special edition of On the Rag, the gang travel back in time to talk about the Equal Pay Act of 1972, and how men and women are still not paid the same in 2017.

We are all about Scooby Doo, Dr Hook and cords this week, as Alex, Leonie and Michele meet in 1972 to talk about equal pay between men and women in New Zealand. From dissecting the 1972 Equal Pay Act to hyping each other up about asking for money, we table the tense issue of women and pay over chocolate biscuits.
