The Fawcett Society have launched a campaign: #FaceHerFuture (pdf). From July 2016 onwards, the campaign will focus on key areas of risk for women – representation, rights, the economy and safety.
Fawcett wants to:
- See a clear commitment from Government that there will be no weakening of women’s rights
- See a gender impact assessment carried out of any major spending decisions – without which we risk seeing women hit hardest again and bearing the brunt of any recession
- See the Government address, as a matter of urgency, the racism and violence that many women and men are experiencing or living in fear or on a daily basis. Recognising the particularly gendered aspect of this violence is essential
