Equality & Human Rights

Human rights are basic rights and freedoms, while equality ensures that people have an equal opportunity to make the most of their lives and talents.


Why it matters

Wales has marked inequalities, with women, disabled people and people from of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic origin being less likely to work, have lower pay and be at greater risk of certain forms of violence than others.

Inequality and the denial of human rights damages lives and wastes people’s potential.

What we are doing

Gender Briefings

We are working with the Women’s Equality Network Wales to produce four briefings on:

  • Women and care
  • Diversity
  • Women, poverty and economic violence
  • What devolution didn’t do for women.

Is Wales Fairer?

We are working with the Equality and Human Rights Commission Wales to update the 2010 review, How Fair is Wales?, to produce its latest ‘state of the nation’ report Is Wales Fairer?
