50 Women for 50 Years project

The 50 women for 50 years project aims to share the stories of 50 women from a diverse range of sectors, backgrounds, age and experiences to highlight the ongoing challenges facing women in work, opportunities and pay. Friday 29th May 2020 marks 50 years since the passage of the Equal Pay Act 1970; the landmark legislation which made equal pay for equal work a legal right for all. But 50 years on, pay inequality is still rife and the vast majority of UK companies still pay women less on average. Equal pay is possible, but we need your help to make the legislation a reality for women across the UK. Find out what you can to do support The Equality Trust’s campaign to end gender pay inequality.
