We are a group of volunteers joining forces to promote the Fawcett Society's vision in East London: Creating a society in which women and girls in all their diversity are equal and truly free to fulfil their potential, creating a stronger, happier, better future for us all.

We are a friendly bunch, always keen to hear new ideas and experiences, and eager to make a positive contribution towards the fight for gender equality. We meet monthly to discuss initiatives, campaigns and events we want to run!

Our campaign to #BanSalaryHistory

How much are you currently earning? 

This one sentence disproportionately contributes to maintaining and perpetuating the gender pay gap.


We believe that:

  • Salary history questioning is a broken, ineffective and damaging practice that should be abandoned
  • Salary should be linked to the future job scope, not an individual’s perceived worth and negotiating abilities
  • Increasing inclusivity and equality in the workplace is good for business as well as society

Our campaign has two main objectives:

  1. Helping employers amend their hiring policies through a pledge
  2. Supporting employees by bringing change internally
