Gina Miller

Businesswoman, campaigner against domestic violence & inequality

Gina Miller started her career in finance in 1996 when she founded a specialist financial services marketing agency, SWAY.  In 2009 she set up SCM Direct as a democratising, modern wealth management.  Launching MoneyShe in June 2020, she dedicated this arm of her business to empowering women and educating them on topics such as personal investing and pensions.

Gina became a household name in 2017 after taking the UK Government to the Supreme Court and again in 2019, securing historic constitutional victories and prohibiting two UK Prime Ministers putting themselves above the law. Both legal challenges were to protect Parliament’s sovereignty, and she continues to work on preserving constitutional, democratic and civil rights safeguards.

Gina has led successful campaigns on issues as diverse as modern-day slavery, domestic violence, special needs, inequality, social justice, and online abuse. Her work in the charity sector over the last 20 years has helped improve governance, sustainability and safeguarding.

Gina published her memoir ‘Rise: Life Lessons in Speaking Out, Standing Tall & Leading the Way’ with many people praising her honesty, resilience and desire to encourage women and men to speak up for themselves and others, even in the face of abuse and denigration.    

Most recently, Gina launched a new political party, the True & Fair Party, with the strap ‘we deserve better’ which focuses on cleaning up politics and creating a ‘wellbeing’ economy where health, happiness and hope stand on an equal footing to the bottom line.
