The Commission: This week, we published our biggest ever review of women's rights in Great Britain, assessing the progress that has been made since 2013 and highlighting concerns across all areas of life
From making workplaces more flexible for families to increasing the diversity of parliamentary candidates, we set out clear recommendations for action for the UK and Welsh governments.
We're also calling for several changes to end violence against women and girls, including:
- higher prosecution and conviction rates for violent crimes against women and girls
- a review of hate crime legislation
- better support for survivors of domestic violence, echoing our recent response to the UK Government's Domestic Abuse Bill consultation
The report has been submitted to the United Nations as part of a major review of the UK's women's rights record under the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), an international human rights treaty.
