Join the Women's Equality Party
There has never been a better time to join the only political movement in the UK that is putting women’s rights at the top of the political agenda. Our party is needed now more than ever.
Women in the UK are bearing the brunt of the cost of living crisis and are being forced to pay for government failures… again. Childcare is unaffordable and unequal pay is taking a toll on women as well as the economy. And across the globe we have seen reproductive rights rolled back and the cost for women that comes with it.
WE are demanding for change, because equality is better for everyone.
Join the only political party pioneering the resistance and putting equality first.

Why get involved?
Last week, a report revealed police officers making sickening ‘jokes’ about sexually assaulting colleagues, abusing their partners, and using disgraceful racist and ableist language and more.
WE took action by placing 'fake incident' signs around the police station involved in the report, and by making 750 calls to the Home Secretary to demand an independent inquiry into misogyny and a radical overhaul of the Police force.
Out of roughly 750 Met officers and staff who faced sexual misconduct allegations, just 83 of them were sacked. Priti Patel is responsible for holding the Police to account. She has the power to launch an independent and statutory inquiry into misogyny for ALL police forces.
It is imperative WE continue taking action to ensure our demands are heard.

How to help:
Yesterday, a report evidenced Met officers making sickening ‘jokes’ about sexually assaulting colleagues, abusing their partners, and using disgraceful racist and ableist language and more.
On Friday 4th February WE will be taking action by making 750 calls to the Home Secretary to demand an independent inquiry into misogyny and a radical overhaul of the FULL Met Police force.
Why 750 calls?
Out of roughly 750 Met officers and staff who faced sexual misconduct allegations, just 83 of them were sacked.
Why the Home Secretary?
Priti Patel is one of the main people that holds the Met Police to account and launched the initial inquiry into the Met Police. However, one inquiry into 'systemic failures' rather than specifically into misogyny with just one out of 180 Met Police stations will never make the change WE need to see.

Dear [Your MP’s name] MP,
I am writing to ask you to act urgently to call for an independent inquiry into the impact of the Covid pandemic on disabled people, which also includes an analysis into the impact that gender has on outcomes for disabled people.
A study carried out by the Office for National Statistics and researchers at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine , issued a report in June of this year. The report’s findings included the following:
[D]isabled people were at higher risk because they are disproportionately exposed to a range of circumstances that actually disadvantaged them, as no single factor explained the results. In addition, we found that disabled people were at higher risk of death from all causes during this period, only a fraction of which involved COVID-19. This finding implies a need to improve services and access to healthcare for disabled people, and tackling the drivers of disadvantage and excess mortality, both during and after the pandemic.
Over a decade of austerity that has targeted disabled people, a fundamental lack of funded social care and multiple barriers to accessing education or work have led to higher mortality rates. While disabled men have also seen a huge disparity in outcomes, the additional discrimination faced by women puts disabled women at higher risk.
Key facts from this study include:
- People with learning disabilities were approximately 4-5 times more likely to be hospitalized for COVID-19, and 7-8 times more likely to die.
- Working-age disabled women with higher support needs are 91% more likely to die then their non-disabled counterparts.
- Working-age disabled women with lower support needs are twice as likely to die as their non-disabled counterparts.
- 58% of those who died from COVID-19 in England were disabled people.
When Dominic Cummings shared the whiteboard picture with the words “Who do we not save?” We knew the answer was Disabled women.
In the summer the Women’s Equality Party Disability Caucus protested for 91 hours at Parliament square to highlight these shocking findings and to demand an inquiry The caucus also held local protests and an online rally to demand change.
Disabled women are not just a statistic you can ignore, but women with full and ordinary lives. We are your sisters, mothers, grandmothers, aunties and friends. We have careers and degrees, and we have hopes and dreams just like everyone else. Disabled women should not have been more at risk of dying from Covid.
As your constituent I am asking you to please join calls demanding an inquiry into the impact of the Covid pandemic on disabled people
