Today, alongside more than 50 specialist organisations, we’ve joined Agenda Alliance in #CallingSOS on the crisis of unmet need women and girls are facing.

Together, we’ve written to the leaders of the four main political parties to demand whoever forms the next government creates a standalone Secretary of State for Women and Girls. 

Women and girls across Britain are facing significant disadvantage spanning every area of government: health, housing, social care, the criminal justice system, education and immigration.

They need a champion at the highest level of government who can give them the attention they deserve, and drive forward the policy change they desperately need.
