This year TUC Women’s conference 3-5 March 2021 is going virtual

The conference sign-up is now closed, however it is not too late to join. Please email for more information


We all have the power to make a difference in the world – but with so many complex, urgent issues competing for our attention, what can one woman do?

Here at the TUC we’ve spent the last few months designing a unique interactive online experience with a difference, inspired by women trade unionists, activists and campaigners who are transforming their communities and workplaces.

Whether it’s fighting for equal pay, tackling sexual harassment or supporting survivors of domestic abuse. Each of us can make a difference. When we claim our rights, stand in solidarity together and assert our power, we can change the world for women everywhere.

Take a look at the programme and sign up for your preferred sessions. Now is the time to:

  • Show up for gender equality
  • Show up for equal pay
  • Show up for racial equality
  • Show up for survivors of gender-based violence

Be the change
