We are calling on the new Prime Minister to show her commitment to equality in her first 100 days at number 10.
Today the Women’s Equality Party launch a new campaign, backed by Women's Aid, Women for Refugee Women and IC Change, that sets out six achievable goals for Theresa May to commit to by the end of her 100th day in office. #100daysofMay will allow the new Prime Minister to show her commitment to gender equality.
As Home Secretary, Theresa May introduced a law to criminalise coercive and controlling behaviour, and called out police attitudes in dealing with cases of domestic violence and abuse. These gains should be celebrated, but there is so much more to do. We’re asking her to go further as our new Prime Minister, by committing to six realistic policies that would transform women’s lives across the UK.
We have worked with key women’s organisations and individuals, who are supporting our campaign, to identify the six commitments we would like to see. The Women’s Equality Party will be holding the Prime Minister to account on these six commitments with regular updates throughout the 100 days of the campaign.
