Why this is important to me

UNA Wales believes that gender inequality inhibits Wales' progress. A subject as great as gender equality deserves an Assembly Member's full attention, in order for there to be greater results, which the men, and women, of Wales deserve.

Some causes for action: 150,000 women in Wales suffer from some form of gender based domestic violence every year; the pay gap in Wales has increased to 12.7%, up from 10.3% in 2009; desperate need to ensure that women and men are respected and treated equally in all areas of life, for example, there is not a single women's prison in the whole of Wales, meaning that mothers struggle to see their families and friends due to being locked up in distant places.
