The Fawcett Society is a UK-based charity campaigning for gender equality and women’s rights.
The Fawcett Society dates back to 1866, when Millicent Fawcett dedicated her life to women’s suffrage. The society campaigns for equal pay, tackles gender stereotypes, defends women’s rights during the Covid-19 pandemic and more. It also offers an Equal Pay advice service to support women who are being paid unequally.
