The government are today launching a campaign to correct the imbalance between male and female honour nominations.

The UK Honour System website says that just 37% of honours are bestowed upon women “not because women achieve less than men […] because we shout about it less”.

Honours can be awarded for all types of achievement – in the workplace or the community. Nominees should have displayed outstanding achievement in their field or have made a real impact to the everyday lives of those around them.

If you know an inspiring woman to nominate, the details are here.
