"ARE WE GOING TO TALK ABOUT WOMEN'S RIGHTS AGAIN?
YES, WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT IT UNTIL THERE'S BALANCE"
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.
SOCIAL MEDIA HEALTH DURING LOCKDOWN
Social media use has boomed during COVID-19, with a study from April 2020 revealing that nearly 47% of people spent longer on social media during lockdown. Everyone has expressed worries about their wellbeing in the face of an all-consuming, 24-hour media. The problem is intensifying and the stakes seem to be getting higher. Social media is a huge presence in everyone's lives. Rather than just limiting usage, how can we make the experience a positive and enriching one?
Our Disrupt Your Feed research tackles this worrying concern, and we found a simple solution to start improving social media health. The results of the study proved to us that there really is a way to make social media healthier for everyone.

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:
By sharing women's stories in our books, videos, podcasts, schools programme and articles
"I hear people asking 'How do I get started, how do I do this?' You just start. It won't be perfect. It'll be messy and it'll be hard, but you're on your way."
If you are a student, parent or teacher please visit our website dedicated to our Educational Programme: The Female Lead Society.
The Female Lead Society is a school’s programme that will help shape discussions around female representation and ambition. The programme is made of 30-45 minute sessions, focusing on a range of topics from careers, feminism, friendships, money and lots more.
It’s a community of girls working towards a bright future for themselves and other women. You can sign up to The Female Lead Society here
