Consultation responses and briefings
WEN Wales regularly submits consultation responses on key issues for women in Wales to the Welsh Government, UK Government and the Welsh Parliament committees, ensuring that our members’ voices and women’s voices are heard by decision makers.
We also write briefings for Members of the Welsh Parliament and Members of the UK Parliament ahead of significant votes and debates.

Our Manifesto: Equality for Women and Girls in Wales
WEN Wales, Chwarae Teg, Women Connect First and Welsh Women’s Aid published our manifesto as we have a vision of a Wales where every woman and girl is treated equally, lives safe from violence and fear and is able to fully participate in the economy.
We want to ensure that Wales is the safest country in Europe to be a woman and that Wales is a truly feminist nation, where women and girls can flourish and actively participate in their communities. This document sets us on the path to achieve this.
Our manifesto spells out the actions that need to happen to transform Wales into a country free from gender discrimination and ensure women’s rights are realised.
Working together, gender equality in Wales can become a reality in our lifetimes.
