aBOUT 

The Equality Act 2010 was established to cover nine protected characteristics: Age, Disability, Gender reassignment, Marriage or Cvil Partnership, Pregnancy and maternity, Race, Religion or belief, Sex, Sexual Orientation. 

However, in 2018 alone, we have seen the gender pay-gap issue, punish a Muslim day letters, concerns about anti-Semitic attitudes and behaviour, and the Windrush Scandal. All of these issues have in common the way in which they compel us to question what equality means in today's society. We believe that the equality act needs to be strengthened in order to ensure that we live in a fair and equal society for all. 

Our campaign

  1. Add categories that are not already covered (i.e. homelessness, mental health, poverty, ethnicity). ​

  2. Extend the act beyond the workplace.

  3. Improve education around the act. 

  4. Ensure compatibility with prosecution. 

  5. Have a mandatory review every three years.  

We will hold parliamentary discussions to address how the equality act can be improved. We also want the public to have their say by emailing us with their views. Together, we want to inform policy around the equality act with our findings.

JESS PHILLIPS MP

For too long the gender pay-gap has gone un-actioned. The gender-pay gap must be made unlawful under the Equality Act. Only then will employers ensure women are treated as equal to men in the workplace. 

WES STREETING MP

The Equality Act was a landmark piece of legislation designed to safeguard and positively promote rights of everyone. It is time for a proper review of what has worked and where the law can be improved.

SHABANA MAHMOOD MP

Equality is a fundamental value of our society. Our communities thrive if the Equality Acts protects them adequately."

1 in 4 people are thought to experience mental health problems each year. It can be the cause for many to be discriminated at work. It is therefore time to review the equality act 2010 to include mental health as a protected characteristic.

NAZ SHAH MP

Islamophobia is growing at an unprecedented rate. We need to strengthen the equality act to ensure discrimination against Muslims is unlawful.

AFZAL KHAN MP

The equality act must be reviewed more frequently to ensure it meets the changing society we live in.
