More than two thirds of UNISON members are women.

UNISON’s women’s member group (known as a self-organised group) campaigns for equality in the workplace and for improvements to women’s rights in the workplace and in the wider community.

It also supports campaigns aimed at improving women’s lives – for example, to change the law to protect women experiencing domestic violence, or to raise awareness of health issues which mainly affect women.

As a member of UNISON, you have the support and guidance of thousands of other women members, who face the same workplace challenges as you. If you encounter issues such as the gender pay gap or denial of your maternity rights, UNISON can help you with practical information, support and legal advice.

Speak to your representative if you would like to find out more about getting involved.

Menopause Support Network at Goldsmiths

​​​​​​​​In Summer 2017, a group of women with a shared interest in discussing the impact of the menopause created the Menopause Support Network. The group meet every few weeks to have informal conversations about the subject and ask any questions in an open and supportive environment. All women are welcome, and should come along to to a meeting if they wish to join the group.​  Please email staffwellbeing@gold.ac.uk for further information or to join the mailing list.
