ERA 50:50

Campaigning for 5050 gender balance

on British Stage and Screen by 2020


ERA 50:50

Our mission is a simple one. ERA 50:50 wants to see women represented on screen, in television and theatre in equal numbers to men. Currently women are systemically under represented. This does not accurately represent our society. It distorts our view of the real world. Equal Representation for Actresses, for Audiences, for All. Equal means 50:50.


We can’t do this without you. To create lasting change, we need your support. We are working with industry, with government and other bodies to work together to achieve 5050 gender balance by 2020 across publicly funded bodies


ERA 50:50 is an industry led campaign with hundreds of supporters that include Emma Thompson, James Nesbitt, Ophelia Lovibond and Phoebe Waller-Bridge to mention just a few. Check out our ERA Warrior pages, buy your badge and become part of our movement.
