Millicent Fawcett's legacy was the vote for women. What will yours be?

Millicent Fawcett dedicated her life to leading the peaceful campaign for women’s votes. She was fortunate enough to see these voting rights won in full shortly before her death. And the legacy of her hard-fought campaign has touched the lives of every single woman alive in the UK today. I believe all women have the power to continue in her footsteps and help create a stronger, happier, fairer future for all women and girls in all our diversity. By leaving a gift in your Will to Fawcett, you can be a part of creating this better future.

Sam Smethers, CEO

With an unrivalled weight of history behind it, Fawcett is a nonpartisan and independent voice on women’s rights and equality. We are committed to creating a better world for women and girls through our independent research and campaigning. 

But we need your support to ensure positive change continues.

If you'd like your support to benefit future generations, a gift in your Will would help us continue advancing women’s rights and equality.
