This general election offers an opportunity for all political parties to explicitly support equality for women.

Women’s lives have changed significantly in the last 50 years but there is still lots of work to do.

We are a coalition of 29 organisations striving for gender equality and women’s human rights. We call on candidates from across the political spectrum to adopt policies to redress the imbalances in our society that harm all women and girls, especially those who are further marginalised by race, ethnicity, class, sexual orientation or disability. We call on candidates to commit to:

End violence against women and girls

Secure women's equal representation in politics

Promote equality in the workplace and in the home

Invest in public services

Life women & children out of poverty

This is a manifesto for change. A manifesto for a more equal society. Use this guide to inform conversations you have with candidates at hustings and on the doorstep. Share your thoughts on the manifesto with us by tweeting using #GE2019womenandgirls.
