PARITY is a national non-party charity having no paid staff or public funding.
Because PARITY seeks changes in the law to redress statutory sex discrimination, it has been deemed in the past to be "political" and thus been denied charitable status. Its funding therefore depends entirely on subscriptions and donations from members and sympathetic individuals and organisation.
Since the advent of the 1998 Human Rights Act, however, charitable purposes have been broadened to include bona fide human rights activities and after further application, PARITY was eventually accepted as a registered Charity.
