Chwarae Teg's Manifesto

Chwarae Teg is the Welsh charity that helps women achieve and prosper. Despite progress, we are still not making the most of women’s potential contribution to the economy. This manifesto sets out a number of actions that we are asking all political parties to support.

A Wales where Women Achieve and Prosper

This manifesto sets out a number of actions that we are asking all political parties to support. Education and Skills, Economy, Employment, and much, much more . . .

We do this because despite progress, we are still not making the most of women’s potential contribution to the economy.

Over 40 years after the Equal Pay Act was introduced, the pay gap between men and women remains with women taking home just 80% of men’s income on average. Women also still tend to be found in low-skilled, low-paid jobs despite increasing educational attainment.

In the face of significant economic challenges and reductions in public sector spending, we need to make more of women’s skills and abilities to benefit families, communities and the Welsh economy.
