Women - not a minority but a majority group through most of British history - had been protesting about inequality for at least a century and had, at last, by 1928, achieved the vote on equal terms with men.But still in 1945 they tended at all ages to be poorer, with more limited opportunities in all spheres of life, than men.A response to another old demand for gender equality, the Equal Pay Act, came in 1970.

Disabled people, especially those who were mentally disabled, benefited least from the introduction of the National Health Service in 1948, though in the early 1950s they occupied half of all hospital beds, often in bleak conditions.

Since then, there have been greater changes than at any time in British history in public perceptions of such inequalities. And can history help us to understand how further change can come about?

In 1945 inequalities of age, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation and disability were deep-rooted, taken-for-granted facts of British culture, rarely openly discussed or challenged even by most of those who suffered from them. What follows is based upon a report prepared by historians in the Centre for Contemporary British History and the History & Policy network, commissioned by the Equalities Review team at the Cabinet Office, which requested answers precisely to these questions, now edited by Pat Thane as (Continuum 2010).

Cash benefits for disabled people and their carers were introduced and improved community services encouraged.

The provision was limited, but was improved in 1975 when Labour returned to office.

The organisations now known as MENCAP and MIND were founded in 1946 to campaign for improved treatment of mentally ill people and those who were then known as 'backward children'.
