We know women are paid on average 15.9 per cent less than men per hour at UK universities but when it comes to knowing gender gaps in bonuses, our reporter has found the waters are much murkier.  And while women may be at the helm of universities today, four decades ago it was almost unheard of. We talk to a woman who broke the mould for female leaders in US higher education. Speaking of mould breaking, we also hear about the first women allowed to sit university entrance exams in the UK, even though it was another decade before they could actully study a degree.  


Joining Sara Custer is THE reporter Rachael Pells, historian at the Instittue of Advanced Study, Philip Carter, and 9th president of the University of Chicago, Hanna Holborn Gray.
