Can you help us make the case for a gender economy?

2019 has been a tumultuous year. With a General Election on December 12th which will decide not only the next government but our future relationship with the European Union, our future political and economic situation is still uncertain. In these uncertain times, the work of the Women’s Budget Group is more important than ever. We have to continue to make the case for gender equality not only because it is the right thing to do, but because it will result in a more sustainable and resilient economy.

Secretary of Health faces legal challenge over charging destitute migrant women for NHS maternity care – Maternity Action

The charity Maternity Action has launched a legal challenge to the Government’s policy of charging destitute migrant pregnant women £7,000 or more to access NHS maternity care.

SMK's Annual Campaigners Survey

Are you a campaigner? 'Campaigning' means different things to different people. We see it as any activity designed to change policy, law, attitudes or behaviours. 

Are you part of civil society? We are interested in campaigning by charities, non-profit-making groups (including community enterprises), or volunteers, who act collectively to press for change.  

Every year, the Sheila McKechnie Foundation (SMK) asks campaigners what’s going on in their world.
