Our report A home of her own, housing and women looks at how women are being impacted by the housing crisis. The report found:

  • Nowhere in England is housing affordable for women. There is no region in England where the average home to rent is affordable for a woman on median earnings.
  • Women need over 12 times their annual salaries to be able to buy a home in England, while men need just over eight times.
  • Across England as a whole average rents take 43% of women’s median earnings and 28% of men’s.

If you would like to campaign about housing issues on a local or regional level the below resources can help support you to do this.
