Why we campaign for girls' rights
Crime not compliment
40% of the UK public believe the Government aren’t taking public sexual harassment seriously. If we bring our voices together, the Government will see just how loud the demand for change is and we can compel them to act.
Now is the time to up the pressure. Over 60,000 people have already joined our call for a new Public Sexual Harassment law. Add your name today and together we can change the law and help girls to stay safe.
Girls' Rights in the UK 2020
In 2016 our research revealed that, despite living in one of the richest countries in the world, girls across the UK were being denied their rights.
Now, at the turn of the decade, our latest report shows the true extent of gender inequality in the UK. It reveals that girls are ‘fed up and frustrated’ with the lack of progress on gender equality, and are continuing to face very real threats to their safety in public, sexism in school and a lack of control over their bodies.
Stand in solidarity with girls in crisis
We must act now to ensure the new Government department listens to girls, especially those living through crisis, and continues to put girls at the heart of its global action.
That’s why, we are asking you to contact your local MP to call on the new Government department to seize this critical moment by setting out an ambitious vision which puts promoting equality for girls at its heart.
Period poverty: the toxic trio
Since launching our Menstrual Manifesto, we’ve been taking on the three issues UK girls identified as creating a ‘toxic trio’ of period poverty: the cost of sanitary products; a lack of education about periods; and shame, stigma and taboo.
Our Locked Out campaign highlighted the issue of girls not being able to go to the toilet during lessons at school, even when they get their period. Meanwhile, your support for our period emoji campaign has secured a new way to smash the period taboo, using one of the world’s fastest growing global languages.
Email your MP to keep girls' equality on the agenda.
