Mother’s day was on Sunday 10 March and is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the role of mothers and the many different types of families in Britain. Go to www.stonewall.org.uk/mothersday for our ideas on how you can get involved.
Health - Prescription for Change: Lesbian and bisexual women's health. In 2007, Stonewall conducted the largest survey of lesbian and bisexual women’s health needs outside America. The results are quite disturbing.
You can also find more information on the health needs of lesbian and bisexual women here.
International - Stonewall is proud to work internationally and we fully recognise that lesbians and bi women worldwide face abuse and violence. For International Women's Day we wrote about some of the challenges - and our hope that things can change. Read our article in the Huffington Post here.
Parenting - Stonewall has worked hard to ensure that lesbian, gay and bisexual people have the same legal rights to parenthood as everyone else because we know that gay people are just as capable of creating loving and supportive families. If you’d like more information on how to get pregnant, download our free guide Pregnant Pause here.
Our new guide So...you think your child is gay? answers common questions parents may have when they think their child is gay or has just come out. The guide aims to dispel common myths about what being gay means for young people, as well as helping parents create a supportive environment for their children.

Our Different Families, Same Love posters, cards and stickers are designed to help primary schools celebrate all different types of families in the classroom. Our research shows that bullying in primary schools particularly affects children with same-sex parents so resources like these are vital to can help all children recognise difference and support other pupils with different family lives from their own.
The Stonewall Youth Volunteering Programme is a key part of our work tackling homophobia in education. We support our Youth Volunteers to carry out their own anti-homophobia campaigns in their local community each with additional support from a Youth Leader. This year the programme attracted more female Youth Volunteers than ever before! A great sign that we’re reaching young women. Please contact us if you’d like to be a Youth Leader on the 2014 Programme.
Stonewall’s latest guide on leadership, Role Models: Sexual Orientation and the Workplace, is a great illustration of authentic leadership and features the stories of 8 successful and inspiring women.
The Double Glazed Glass Ceiling: Lesbians in the Workplace - employers often express concern about the small number of openly-gay women in their workplaces and the even smaller numbers engaged in their work around sexual orientation. Stonewall’s report suggests that often gay women think their gender is more of a barrier to success at work than their sexual orientation.
