Why Fawcett?

Fawcett has delivered change for women for more than 150 years. But we aren’t finished yet. And we know we’re most effective when we work in partnership with our affiliates & supporters.

  • Our Sex Discrimination Law Review led to government consultations on flexible working, parental leave, & protections for pregnant women at work
  • Over 10,000 employers now report on their gender pay gap – & thanks to our campaigning, this now includes bonuses
  • 50,000 people signed our #RightToKnow petition on Equal Pay Day 2019
  • We launched a free equal Pay Advice Service in 2018 supporting people on low incomes, in partnership with YESS Law

Why Now? 

With a new government in place, our mission to protect the hard-won rights of women is more important than ever. Together, we’ve come a long way but there’s much more to do:

  • It will take 60 years to close the gender pay gap at the current rate
  • 1 in 2 women have been sexually harassed at work
  • Black African women earn 80p for every £1 a white man earns
  • Women earn 87p for every £1 a man earns
