The Women's Equality Party is a political party in the United Kingdom that was formed following a public meeting in London's Royal Festival Hall on 28 March 2015, where it was concluded that there was a need for a political party in the United Kingdom to campaign for gender equality to the benefit of all. The meeting was organised via Facebook under the title "The Women's Equality Party needs you. But probably not as much as you need the Women's Equality Party" following a proposal by Catherine Mayer. The party's full policy was launched by party leader, Sophie Walker, at Conway Hall, 20 October 2015.
On 2 March 2015, author and journalist Catherine Mayer attended a "Women in Politics" event at the Women of the World Festival(Purcell Room, Southbank Centre). The panel was chaired by Jude Kelly (Artistic Director, Southbank Centre), and the panel consisted of Katie Ghose (CEO, Electoral Reform Society), Margot James (Conservative), Stella Creasy (Labour) and Jo Swinson (Lib Dem). Having watched the panelists agreeing collegially with each other on almost every point Mayer stood up and said, "What about if I found a Women's Equality Party, tell you what, I'm going to go to the bar afterwards, anyone interested in discussing this come and see me."
On 8 March 2015, at the same festival, comedian Sandi Toksvig presented an event entitled "Sandi Toksvig's Mirth Control: Stand Up and Be Counted", (Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre). Interviewed by Jenni Murray on the BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour, Toksvig said, "I had a fantasy cabinet of women, and I didn't care which party they came from, we had Doreen Lawrence as our Home Secretary. Can you imagine anything more wonderful? We had paralympian Tanni Grey-Thompson as our Sports Minister, and I asked them to put forward practical suggestions. The world is in a parlous state, 9.1 million women failed to vote in the last election, we need to attract them, we also need to attract the more than 7 million men who didn't vote. Why are people not engaged in politics, because I don't think that the people standing represent the diversity of this country." Mayer phoned Toksvig and the two agreed to become co-founders of the party.
