Millennial Amber Smith writes: Whilst waiting to go into a history lecture, I noticed that the students walking out of the engineering lecture were predominately male. As I looked around at my female peers - waiting for the history lecture - I realised the extent to which the gender gap still prevails and considered the impact this would have on our future working lives.

You only have to walk into toy shops to see that gender differences are still promoted from an early age. Yet my generation does not expect or condone a gender gap: we expect to be able to go in to any job, at the same level, and be promoted and paid equally alongside our male counterparts.
