 Waving the flag of rebellion

We are arguably in another revolutionary period for gender equality. As legislation enforcing firms to report their gender pay gap is implemented, increased scrutiny of male entitlement around the world is simultaneously taking place.

High-profile cases, such as the charges brought against Harvey Weinstein after allegations of sexual abuse - and the consequent spotlight on widespread systemic sexism and harassment – have also given the fight against inequality much greater energy.

As a result, women are feeling bolder. Rightly so. The new Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle is proud to be a feminist. Ireland’s Eighth Amendment law against abortion will be repealed and TIME Magazine named ‘The Silence Breakers’ - those women who called out systemic sexual assault and began the #MeToo campaign - their Person of the Year 2017.

Although these may seem like small victories, they have acted as cumulative catalysts towards greater change. To commemorate a better year for women, in this issue we’re charting and celebrating the progression of female workplace rights. On the centenary year in which women won the right to vote, the hope is that both men and women can carry on the spirit that earned women the right to suffrage so we can all continue to pave the way for better equality.
