Equality Campaigner Jenny Carter and Women's March organiser Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu told ITV News why there is still a long way to go.

Ms Carter said: "There are very subtle forms of sexism that are still taking place in the work place."

Calling on the Government to do more, Dr Mos-Shogbamimu said they need to "go much further" and "address the issue institution by institution."
