Get to know Fawcett East London
Who are we?
We are a group of feminists based in East London (but open to anybody).
We are a local, grassroots group of the Fawcett Society, the UK's leading membership charity campaigning for gender equality and women's rights at work, at home and in public life.
We are all volunteers and work in partnership with their national office, to create a society in which women and girls in all their diversity are equal and truly free to fulfil their potential, creating a stronger, happier, better future for us all.
What do we do together?
We are an enthusiastic, friendly group. We come together through events like our monthly meetings, bookclub and events to learn, discuss and mobilise to make a positive contribution to the fight for gender equality.
At the moment we are working on a national campaign to end salary history, as evidence shows that this is a clear, specific action we can take to quickly increase pay for women and people of colour and mitigate the gender pay gap. We are also working on creating a local, East London based project in 2022.
