Past Successes

Through litigation in the courts applying European Union or European Convention law binding (by statute or treaty) in the UK, PARITY has instigated cases resulting in:


  • equal qualifying ages for men and women - for exemption from NHS prescription charges (1995), for winter fuel payments (2000), and for local bus travel concessions (2003), and
  • equal treatment for widowers and widows in survivors social security benefits and bereavement tax allowances (2001).
PARITY remains engaged with the inequality between men's and women's state pension ages and other inequalities of treatment associated with that inequality.
