Announcement on Equal Pay Day 2019 coming in October! Follow us online or sign up to our mailing list to be the first to hear news.

Equal Pay Day in 2018 fell on Saturday 10th November. Read our latest Gender Pay Gap briefing here.

We have teamed up with employment law charity YESS Law to launch a new Equal Pay Advice Service, funded by an Equal Pay Fund which has been started thanks to the generous donation of backdated pay from former BBC China Editor Carrie Gracie. The service will be targeted at those on low incomes who believe they are experiencing pay discrimination and who do not have access to legal advice, enabling them to resolve the situation with their employer. Support the service and women fighting for equal pay, by donating towards the Fund today.

Fawcett are calling on people to be a part of their campaign to fight unequal pay by taking ‘3 steps to #GetEqual’: Talk, Share, and Donate.
