The Fawcett Society is the UK’s leading charity campaigning for gender equality and women’s rights.

Our vision is a society in which the choices you can make and the control you have over your life are no longer determined by your gender.

The Fawcett Society campaigns to:

Close the gender pay gap. The pay gap has remained stagnant for three years in a row.

Secure equal power. Just 30% of MPs and 33% of councillors are women.

Challenge attitudes and change minds. 20% of men aged 25-34 say women’s equality has ‘gone too far’.

Defend women’s rights post-Brexit. There must be no turning the clock back.

Our national campaigns shape the debate and drive change - and they are made possible through the support of our members. 2018 marks 100 years since women first secured the right to vote in the UK. We are running an exciting programme of activity to celebrate our suffrage history and inspire the next generation of women's rights campaigners. There's never been a better time to be a part of Fawcett.

We publish compelling research to educate, inform and lead the debate

We bring together politicians, academics, grassroots activists and wider civil society to develop innovative, practical solutions

We campaign with women and men to make change happen
