Who are we?

We started Woman’s Place UK in September 2017 to ensure women’s voices would be heard in the consultation on proposals to change the Gender Recognition Act. We had 5 demands and we didn’t expect the campaign to last more than 3-4 months.

42759949_2224848987760267_815705372881846272_nThanks to the support and actions of thousands of people all over the UK we had a big collective impact on the debate and that that the government has heard the voices of thousands of women.

At the same time, the debate has exposed the poor state of women’s rights in the UK. We have decided therefore to develop a broader campaign on the foundations we have built.

We will keep up the pressure on the government around the GRA and on councils and organisations to uphold equality law.

But there are other battles we need to fight too.49729239_764173883936800_5111080613465554944_n

So we have made some New Year Resolutions to help us broaden the campaign in 2019.

1. Women have the right to self-organise

2. The law must work for women

3. An end to violence against women

4. Nothing about us without us

5. Sex matters

In May 2019, we launched our draft WPUK manifesto. It outlined specific actions that we want politicians to take to address the oppression and discrimination faced by women and girls.

Following feedback from our supporters, we have published our WPUK revised manifesto.

We will be asking our supporters to download a copy of this manifesto and post it to their MP.

As ever, we will continue to listen and develop our campaign. We believe that respectful dialogue is vital if we are to create a society which upholds the rights of everyone.
