Econ3 - Sexism and Ageism alive and well on our TVs

Those of you who are about to take your Econ 3 exam (or whose students are getting ready for the final push), might find this story about sexism in TV an interesting example of inequality in the labour market.  A report out yesterday and being pursued by Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, Harriet Harman suggests that a lowly 18% of UK TV presenters over the age of 50 are women.  Some channels are worse than others.

The story is also a good example of how current government intervention in this labour market is having little effect.  Anti-ageist and sexist laws exist and yet there appears a very real 'glass-ceiling' when it comes to women over the age of 50 wishing to work on TV.  If legislation is ineffective what other policies could students suggest might improve the situation?  A quota system?  Fines?  Here is a real chance to offer critical and evaluative analysis on government intervention.
