About us

The Women’s Budget Group is at the forefront of scrutinising government policy from a gender perspective. We are a network of leading feminist economists, researchers, policy experts and campaigners committed to achieving a more gender equal future. We have worked towards this since 1989.

Our highly-respected research and analysis is regularly cited in Parliamentary debates, by academics, other NGOs and in the media.

We also work to build the capacity of women and women’s groups to participate in debates about economics and budgeting by running training workshops and developing resources.

The Women’s Budget Group is independent and not-for-profit. We are grateful to our funders and members who have supported our work over many years.

We are run by a Management Committee and have over 400 members. If you want to become a member, you’ll find more information and a sign up form here.
