The Fawcett Society aims
- Turn the tide on the gender pay gap: on 20th November 2022, women stopped earning compared to their men counterparts due to the 11% gender pay gap. The charity campaigns for key reforms, from creating a childcare system that works for parents to stopping employers from asking salary history questions in order to make equitable workplaces and close the gender pay gap.
- Ensure equal power and representation for women: Less than 1/3 of the UK’s top jobs are filled by women, and the outlook is even worse for Black and minoritised women. Every two years our Sex and Power index highlights this stark inequality, shining a light on the changes that need to be made from the boardroom to Parliament.
- End harmful gender stereotypes: 74% of parents report that boys and girls are treated differently, and 60% of parents report this differential treatment has negative impacts. The charity has been working to tackle this stereotyping, collaborating with Ofsted to change their school inspection criteria, the Department of Education to change the curriculum and companies to improve their advertising and editorial policies.
- Secure equal power: only 34% of MPs and 35% of councillors are women. With such a low ratio, The Fawcett Society is busy campaigning to get more women involved in politics - placing importance on diversity.
