Pressing for Progress: Women’s Rights and Gender Equality in 2018

by | Jul 23, 2018

This report for the UK Equality and Human Rights Commission looks at the state of women’s rights in Great Britain in 2018.

It assesses the progress on women’s rights since 2013 and makes recommendations to the UK and Welsh governments, in areas including:

  • enhancing the status of international human rights in domestic law
  • gender-based violence, harassment and abuse
  • participation in political and civic life
  • access to civil justice
  • human trafficking and modern slavery
  • detention and asylum
  • health, living standards and social security
  • work and education

The report has been submitted to the United Nations as part of our work on monitoring the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), the international human rights treaty that focuses specifically on equality between women and men in all areas of life.

The report can be found here.
