This briefing paper maps the state of women’s equality in London across a range of indicators:

  • Economic equality.
  • Access to services.
  • Experience of violence.
  • Choices around family and work life.
  • Women’s representation in London.

This briefing aims to highlight that we are set to see regression for women’s equality across these indicators London-wide, and to illustrate the importance of considering women as a core part of all the debates around the London Mayoral elections. The Fawcett Society recommends that the Mayor and the GLA pledge to meet their legal duties, asking for public commitments that they will assess the impact of all their policies and spending decisions.
