Women's rights

Womens-Rights

Gender equality is recognised as a fundamental right in EU law.

As a member of the EU, the rights of working women have been strengthened on:

• Equal pay

• Sex discrimination

• Maternity rights

• The rights of part-time and temporary workers

Women’s rights must be protected and should not be overlooked or weakened in the UK’s exit negotiations and beyond.

Please join our campaign to make sure Brexit is not used to undermine women’s rights.

Dear David Davis,

Gender equality is recognised as a fundamental right in EU law. As a member of the EU, the rights of working women have been strengthened on equal pay, sex discrimination, maternity rights and the rights of women, part-time workers and temporary workers.

Women's rights must be protected and should not be overlooked or weakened in the UK's exit negotiations and beyond. Brexit cannot and must not be used to undermine women's rights.
