THE FEMALE LEAD

The Female Lead is an educational charity dedicated to finding the factors that limit women’s choices and fulfilment and amplifies their voices in order to drive change and improve economic outcomes.

Women’s voices and stories have been ignored and undervalued. Girls learn early on that society expects them to follow a narrow version of success. The Female Lead shares the stories of women who have found different ways to fulfilment and achievement.
 

Through research, analysing data and by listening to thousands of women, across the whole spectrum of school and working life, we can begin to shape more helpful policies and interventions.
 


 

These interventions aren’t just good for women – they benefit industry and government, not just philosophically or morally but financially. Keeping women at work longer, bringing them back to work after maternity, encouraging them to aim for a bigger role, all of this will deliver billions if not trillions of dollars to the economy.

We reveal the factors that limit women's choices and fulfilment and amplify their voices in order to drive real change and improve economic outcomes.

 

We do this in four ways:

LISTENING

SHARING

REVEALING

INFLUENCING

By listening to women through qualitative and quantitative research 
into their lives
By sharing women's stories in our books, videos, podcasts, schools programme and articles
