About Daughters’ Rights

Daughters’ Rights is challenging the tradition in the European Court of Human Rights of the indefensible practice that denies women the right to stand for election to the House of Lords, because they are women.

Our Goal

To ensure that women have the same right as men to stand for election to the House of Lords

In no part of life should it be acceptable to treat daughters differently from sons, especially at the heart of parliament and we would like to work with parliament for consistency and create fairness among sons and daughters at all levels.
The precedent was set in 2013 when the laws of succession were changed for Royal family, removing preference for sons over daughters. It is merely the will that is stopping us from allowing the same rights for all daughters.

We hope that you will join our campaign to ensure that this last state-sponsored sexual discrimination is overturned.
