Young women know what economic justice looks like. Our manifesto is a nationwide call for change. We want to build communities that value young women and the contribution they make.
The manifesto imagines a world where young women can realise their talents and build a better world for everyone.
The manifesto focuses on 4 objectives:
- unlocking young women’s potential
- smashing career stereotypes
- valuing young women’s unpaid work and
- building equal workplaces.
It sets out the things that young women want to change, including:
- Teaching equality as part of the school curriculum so boys respect girls from the start of primary school
- Access to education and training opportunities that include equal numbers of apprenticeships for young women in engineering and for young men in social care
- Removing the term ‘economically inactive’ from all government policies as a term to describe young women doing unpaid work like caring for children and family members
- Training on how to support survivors of violence available in all workplaces
- A childcare revolution – equal investment in care as in construction and free childcare for those in education and training
