We are the Women’s Equality Network Wales (WEN), a Wales based charity that puts the rights of women first because no society can truly prosper until it is free from gender discrimination. We listen and work with women and women’s organisations to make sure their voices are heard by our decision makers.
The gender inequality gap in Wales must be addressed – everyday women are facing unequal challenges exacerbated by the COVID19 pandemic, which has had a disproportional impact on women’s lives in Wales. Women are at the heart of all that we do, and we won’t stop until they are out of danger, out of poverty, and on track to reach their full potential creating the future they want. The issues women are facing – the unequal sharing of childcare and caring responsibilities, survivors of domestic violence living with their abusing partners, access to women’s healthcare, pay inequality – are not new, but need to be addressed.
WEN is proud to be taking positive and decisive action to give women a stronger voice and influence the things that are important to them. We will continue to connect, campaign and champion on behalf of all women to deliver transformational change in Wales.
We seek to give all women a safe space, a shared community and network through our coalition and WEN Café. Empowering women, enabling them to be heard, WEN puts the voices of all women at the heart of everything we do.
We have a pivotal role to lead and unite the voices of our coalition and individual members, bringing women’s voices together, to make real change possible. Wales needs more women in decision making positions in political, public, and commercial life, women who truly understand the issues we face, and particularly those women from unrepresented groups, in Wales today.
We celebrate inspirational women and their achievements as positive role models for all women, supporting and empowering women to become future leaders through the WEN mentoring scheme.
You can be part of this movement to deliver transformational change. As a charity we rely on our supporters and funders to enable this essential work to continue. With your support we can make things happen.
