EHRC Commission marks the centenary of International Women’s Day

Posted on: 16 March 2011

To mark the occasion of IWD, the Commission has developed a special web page to collate the work we have done to promote gender equality for women and includes a centenary message from our Commissioner, Kay Carberry, as well as special messages of support from the Home Secretary Theresa May and Shadow Minister for Equality, Yvette Cooper.

However if IWD is about celebration, it is not about complacency.

As the Commission’s triennial review report How Fair is Britain? and our forthcoming update to our Sex and Power publication show, we are still a long way from achieving equality. On too many issues, unacceptable inequalities remain: violence against women and girls, marked labour market segregation, the unequal division of care and multiple discrimination to name a few.’

To read her full statement and access messages of support from both the Home Secretary, Theresa May and Shadow Minister for Equality, Yvette Cooper, please visit our website at: http://www.equalityhumanrights.com/human-rights/international-womens-day-2011/
