• Equal Consideration for Women in Sport in England
    It's important for the future development of girls and women's sport. Ultimately for all sport in our country. It's about gender equality and opportunities. Girls need positive roles models like boys do in all aspects of life. Sports enables development of confidence, teamwork and skills. It's also fun but not if you have to fight at every step to access opportunities readily available for boys and men.

  • END ACID VIOLENCE IN THE U.K.
    National governments hold the responsibility to introduce and implement law and policies to protect our fundamental human rights in a cosmopolitan city like London. One of the reasons that acid attacks occur is due to cheap and easy availability of acid in the UK. The state has a due diligence obligation to prevent acid violence on our streets by enforcing tighter regulation of acid sales as well as enacting criminal laws to punish perpetrators. Prevention should start at schools by educating and working with youth to promote respectful relationships and gender equality. Research helps us to understand the causes and effects of acid violence to identify practical and feasible solutions to prevent such attacks whilst taking account of the impact this has on our trade and economy as a whole. We are asking for change in policies and laws that strike a fair and reasonable balance to protect the public whilst being considerate of the rights and duties of our traders, but ultimately our core aim is to punish the perpetrators of this callous act and promote a zero tolerance policy.

  • Support the court case demanding the UK keep it's promise to child refugees (DUBS)
    After the government has refused a second vote on the issue in parliament, the charity Help Refugees (represented by Leigh Day solicitors) is taking the Home Office to court over the Government’s failure to make suitable arrangements for relocating and supporting a specific number of child refugees as promised by the scheme currently known as "DUBS" under UK immigration law. For those who haven't heard about DUBS, it was an amendment made to 2016 law which requires the government to make arrangements ‘as soon as possible’ (after 31 May 2016) to relocate and support a ‘specified number’ of unaccompanied refugee children from Europe. This scheme was created as a response to the increasing pressure on the UK to help in what has been deemed the worst refugee crisis since World War Two. In February of this year our Home Office abandoned the continuation of DUBS quietly in Parliament, and local governments and charities across the UK have been trying to fight the decision. Help Refugees has now launched a formal legal challenge against the government as part of a last chance effort to protect what is truly a lifeline for unaccompanied/lone children fleeing war and/or conflict to Europe. Keeping the DUBS scheme is essential because currently there are 28 million children uprooted because of conflict in their own countries but over 1/9th of the world's refugees right now are in Europe and children make up a third of these numbers (and above 45% in the South East of Europe such as Greece and Macedonia), which make legal channels like DUBS essential for these kids to be able to begin a better life and to not be left to be targeted by traffickers and abusers who focus on Europe's camps. As the 6th richest country in the world, the UK is denying it's international commitments by reversing yet another safe legal passage for these children. Our local councils have said the UK can take in 4000 more children - meaning we have the capacity, all that's lacking is the willingness of our government to support our capacity to give. In its stance, the Home Office is targeting without justification children who have absolutely no one else to turn to and whose lives and futures are at significant risk right now. They have lost everything, meanwhile our government stands from a distance and says we have nothing to give. The Charity Help Refugees and those lawyers standing against the Home Office this week, are doing so because they reject this position. They reject that this is the UK we believe in. We ask the UK public to support this court case as the last chance to keep this scheme in law. We ask that you sign and spread the word about this case and that you don't let the lives of so many kids be determined behind closed doors. Let's shame the Home Office for its position, let's stand tall and fight for the right of these children to a better future from conflict.

  • Chechnya - Asylum for Gay Community
    The UK does not currently have a sitting Parliament, however the lives of gay people in Chechnya are seriously threatened by the State, which is now encouraging their families to murder them to save the State a job. This cannot wait for a new government to respond, Putin is doing and will do nothing. We must act now.

  • Girls can do what boys can do !!
    I believe this is important as it shows that girls can do whatever they like even if everyone says that they can't. It shows girls that they shouldn't be down about themselves and should show there talents, not hide them.

  • No State Visit for President Trump
    Throughout his candidacy and now in the first days of his presidency, Donald Trump has sought to undermine fundamental principles - gender and racial equality, human rights, religious freedom, freedom of the press and preservation of the environment amongst others - that Her Majesty the Queen and the British people hold dear. If a State visit is granted, we believe that it would legitimise a series of beliefs that are fundamentally opposed to those of Her Majesty and the British people.

  • Women`s Health
    Surely penalising Women who have to have gynaecological operations, goes against equality at work laws ? Stress induced by bullying employers, or inflexible corporate dogma, makes hard working people more susceptible to other illnesses, putting good employees into a hopeless situation, demoralising them or, in the worst case scenario, facing dismissal for being unfortunate enough to experience several episodes of illness in one year. Employers know who the malingerers are ( or SHOULD, if they are decent employers). Good Employees need support when ill, NOT corporate bullying.

  • Tie DIE
    In many of the UK's workplaces the wearing of a tie by male employees is both expected and compulsory. In our view, the tie serves no other purpose than to signify the gender of the wearer; in this case male. This is as unfair as women being expected to wear high heels. Men should be able to choose whether to wear a tie or not. Being forced to do so is, in our opinion, both antiquated and sexist.
