Gender

All of Stonewall’s work encompasses the experiences of lesbian and bisexual women. Stonewall have also conducted research on the specific experiences of lesbian and bisexual women in the workplace and of healthcare.

  • Prescription for Change found that half of lesbian and bisexual women had had a negative experience of healthcare in the last year and that lesbian and bisexual women have distinct health needs from heterosexual women, which health care services often do not cater for.

  • The double-glazed glass ceiling found that lesbian and bisexual women felt that their gender was often more of a barrier to their success at work than their sexual orientation. The research also identified key issues and solutions, identified by lesbian and bisexual women themselves, on how employers could improve their experience in the workplace.
