© 2020 THE EQUALITY ACT REVIEW 

PARLIAMENTARY SUPPORT 

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."

LIAM BYRNE MP

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.

LYN BROWN MP

I was the Government Whip for the Equality Act. I'm proud of what we've achieved, but we have so much further to go. The campaign for an Equality Act Review is an exciting opportunity to renew the Act, explore how to include class inequality, and look at how inequalities interact as well.
