Here's why Katie from Manchester thinks our social mobility programme is a "game changer."

There’s a lot of talk about closing pay gaps. The Foundation’s work is at the intersection of identity – from class, to race, to gender and faith. Here, we take a closer look at their impact on pay gaps, and ask whether 2017 is a year of action?

Schona Jolly QC considers the long awaited CJEU decisions in two recent cases concerning religious dress codes in the work place.

Sharing a post from the fantastic - and much needed - Pink Ladoo campaign.

"As our Granddad neared the end of his life we told our Father “even though people say only a male can perform one’s last rites, we will carry Baba’s casket and... stand with you to greet the guests as they honor his life”. When the day came we were asked to walk behind the casket instead of carrying it. Our parents supported us – as they always have - and let us carry the casket but we were stunned and made speechless by that remark. It was so unexpected.

What followed was a landslide of anger and hurt. It wasn’t the men in the family who laid awake with him countless nights at the hospital when he was in pain; who fed him and administered his medication; who slept with a baby monitor in order to monitor his breathing and cries at night; who sat next to him to hear the old folks tales he told so beautifully, and who finally held him during his last breath and told him “don’t be scared Baba, we are with you". It was us - his three granddaughters - fiercely loving him until the very end. Even this picture is of him in his hospital bed which we had transformed for a final photo shoot.

So why did the funeral assistant think it was acceptable to ask this of us? Comments like these set the entire community back. My sisters and I hope one day every South Asian will think twice before making a comment like that out of fear of being ridiculed and shamed.

Our Baba meant the world to us and no gender biased tradition stopped us from carrying him out of this world with our own two hands. We will cherish that moment forever. By sharing our story we hope that young women feel empowered to break sexist traditions. It might only take one person to say ‘no you can’t,’ but it also only takes one person to start a movement by saying ‘yes I will!’

We hope our story can provide support for other families without boys. Male-centric traditions and customs are just one way of trying to show women that they are nothing without men, but we know first hand that just isn't true - we hope that this picture and this story proves that." - Neetu Garcha, Jeetu Garcha and Amanjit Nikki Garcha, Brampton, Canada

The Pink Ladoo project is trying to encourage the South Asian community to recognise the damaging impact of gender biased traditions, customs and dialogue on young girls. For us, the Pink Ladoo is the symbol of a protest against South Asian gender biased cultural norms. We need to raise the value of women. We can do that one Pink Ladoo at a time.

The success of this campaign depends on the number of people we reach. So tweet tag share discuss. Spread the word.
