One thing which really bothers me are scandalmongers who look to do nothing but cause trouble. I call them busybodies, and the trade unions calling for strikes across the board over the 2013 1% pay cap are the personification of busybodies.

While putting a face to discrimination makes unfairness personal and provides a clear point of connection, if we are to push forward real change it is important to look beyond individuals.

The gender pay gap is real. The gender pay gap is a real problem. And the gender pay gap goes much deeper than just giving women a pay rise. This is a struggle that needs to be fought on many fronts, and it is a struggle that needs us all to play an active part. The government legislation to force companies to report their gender pay gap is only the start.

By rewriting the Hollywood musical, Chazelle has given us an alternative ending - one that does justice to the female character, and feels a lot less like 'La La Land' and a lot more like real life. Not sewn into a leather catsuit. Not half-naked. Not airbrushed. It's a 2016 musical that 1950s leading ladies would be proud of.

Social media meninists and radio shock jocks will ask - in synthetically sympathetic tones - whether this isn't just a fuss over nothing. But the pay gap isn't a generational overhang and it isn't going away any time soon. Discrimination isn't a game. Poverty isn't a game.

Claire and Frank - and both her and Kevin Spacey - are equals. Both actors also write and produce, while their on-screen alter-egos each give as good as they get. So why does Robin still have to fight for the same wage packet as her co-star? If she still has to fight for equal pay, what hope is there for the rest of us?
