There are nine characteristics protected under the Equality Act 2010.  Sex is one of these characteristics.

Sex can mean either male or female, or a group of people like men or boys, or women or girls.

VISION
A society in which women and girls in all their diversity are equal and truly free to fulfil their potential creating a stronger, happier, better future for us all.
 
The Fawcett Society campaigns to:
Fight for equal pay. 50 years from the Equal Pay Act, women deserve the right to know what a male colleague doing the same work is paid if they suspect pay discrimination.
Secure equal power. Just 34% of MPs and 35% of councillors are women. We're campaigning to get more women in all our diversity into politics at every level.
Challenge attitudes and change minds. We are working to tackle gender stereotypes that hold back our children.
Defend women’s rights during Covid-19. We're campaigning to ensure that women are not left behind or their needs ignored during the crisis.

This paper provides statistics and analysis on women’s participation in the labour market and in business. It provides an overview of the financial effect of the coronavirus on women and tracks trends of women in employment, the gender pay gap, and women leading businesses.

Sex is a protected characteristic under the Equality Act 2010. The Act prohibits unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation; protects individuals from unfair treatment; and promotes a fair and more equal society. It protects men and women in a variety of fields, including employment, education, the exercise of public functions and the provision of services.
