To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Berridge on 3 November (HL9125), what assessment they have made of the number of women's organisations in the UK; and what plans they have to increase the number of women's organisations with which the Government Equalities Office engages.

The Government Equalities Office (GEO) does not maintain a list of every women's organisation in the UK, however officials are meeting frequently with women’s organisations, primarily to talk about the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. GEO continues to work to ensure the government can hear and be influenced by a wide range of women’s voices.
