The BBC cited a BBC spokeswoman as saying that "fairness in pay" at the corporation is "vital", and that an audit of pay for rank and file staff led by an independent judge found there was "no systemic discrimination against women". Believing that I had secured pay parity with men in equivalent roles, I set off for Beijing. "Equality Act 2010 states that men and women doing equal work must receive equal pay", Gracie wrote.
"Anyone in the BBC who has campaigned on behalf or signed a letter in support of Carrie Gracie, has said that they're in favour of Carrie Gracie and so on, is not allowed to speak on the issue on air".
Europe editor Katya Adler, the BBC's only other female editor in foreign news, did not feature in the disclosures, meaning her pay was less than 150,000 pounds.
Gracie, who has been at the BBC for more than 30 years, said it was facing a "crisis of trust", after it was revealed that two-thirds of its stars earning more than 150,000 pounds a year were male.
Gracie's move received voluble praise online from her colleagues, with veteran BBC journalist Lyse Doucet tweeting, "Brilliant Brave".
Speaking in December, the Guildford MP and Minister of State for Apprenticeships, Skills and Women said, "Despite the Equal Pay Act being passed almost 50 years ago, too many women are still held back in their careers".
It's no secret that most men are paid more than women, even when they are both in the same position.

BBC's China editor, Carrie Gracie, has resigned over the broadcaster's "secretive and illegal pay culture".
Carrie Gracie spoke out following her resignation from the BBC. Obviously a senior editor should get paid more than an entry level reporter, regardless of their gender. "Instead the BBC offered me a big pay rise which remained far short of equality".
For wider change to happen, people need to draw attention to employers who are failing to abide by the legal requirement to pay men and women the same for the same work.
She said she had warned director-general Lord Hall last August that she would resign if the broadcaster did not pay men and women the same for the same jobs.
However, when it doesn't come to sports, there shouldn't be a pay gap between genders.
"For BBC women this is not just a matter of one year's salary or two".

It is believed that up to 200 women at the BBC have made a formal complaint about pay.
Gracie said she would stay with the BBC and "return to my former post in the TV newsroom where I expect to be paid equally".
"It is a century since women first won the right to vote in Britain".
"We will be writing to the BBC and requiring them to provide us with information on their pay policy and the facts in this individual case. Let us honour that courageous generation by making this the year we win equal pay", she continued. @BBCCarrie has resigned as China editor. It was not a gender pay row, it was an equal pay row, which is a very different thing.
According to the Telegraph, the BBC swiftly issued a "reminder" to staff, authorised by the news director Fran Unswoth, that they were bound by impartiality rules and could not report on the story if they had "expressed a view".
A BBC spokesperson had defended the BBC's pay structure, stating that the national broadcaster performs "considerably better than many and are well below the national average".
