Women Still Have a Long Way to Go
It has been 99 years since women gained the right to vote, yet only 32% of MPs are women. It has been 46 years on from the Equal Pay Act, but women still earn less than men on average and women from disadvantaged backgrounds are paid even less. This year alone, 8% of women will experience some form of domestic violence. This is not the world we want.
We are proud to be partnering with What Women Want 2.0 to get 10,000 women from every walk of life to answer the simple question 'What do you want?' and shape the political landscape for 2018. We would love for you to join us and be part of history.
The campaign builds on a 1996 campaign which asked 10,000 women the same questions, with astonishing results. It offered a unique space for women to answer on their own terms, and in their own words. Policies were changed, practices altered, conversations started.
What Women Want 2.0 is back, recognising that whilst there have been many wins, there is still a long way to go. We want to reach as many self-identifying women as possible of all ages, background, ethnicities, locations and identities. We want to capture what women living in Britain want in 2017; what matters to them, what do they care about, what remains the same and what is new. We believe we can shape the political landscape, for a more equal and equitable society.
