We’re asking self-identifying women across the United Kingdom a simple question:
What Do You Want?
99 years since women gained the right to vote, only 32% of MPs are female.
46 years on from the Equal Pay Act, women still earn less than men.
This year, 8% of women will experience some form of domestic violence.
This is not the world we want.
The campaign story
Twenty years ago, the groundbreaking What Women Want survey posed the same question to women across the country. Ten thousand women responded to the call. The result? A bold collage of women’s diverse hopes, dreams, and demands that went on to change policy and perceptions.
The responses offered a compelling blueprint for change, but there’s still a long way to go in the fight towards equality for all women.
Everyday sexism is rife, from the streets to our screens. School-aged girls miss school simply because they can’t afford menstrual products. Women, particularly those from ethnic minority backgrounds, still make up the majority of those in low-paid jobs, while only 17% of the directors of FTSE 100 companies are female.
We need to make our voices heard again.
We will present the results to policy-makers and demand that they listen to us.
This is what we want.
