Every day in the UK women face inequality at home, at work, in politics, and in daily life.

Inequalities of desirable outcomes, anyway. Inequalities of undesirable outcomes are just fine, not even worth mentioning.
I don’t see the WEP calling for “Women’s equality” – what a ridiculous term! – with respect to the 20 areas in our general election manifesto.
Another meaning for WEP occurs to me:
