Women vs local cuts – a toolkit for local action

Nov 5, 2013 | Resources

Supported by Rosa: the UK Fund for Women and Girls, the WBG worked in collaboration with the Women’s Equality Network (WENS) in Somerset, and the Women’s Employment, Enterprise and Training Unit (WEETU) in Norfolk to produce a toolkit: ‘Women vs the Cuts: Challenging Gender Equality Impact Assessments and Local Government Budgets’.

This is a toolkit for women’s organisations, community groups and others who want to evaluate whether and how English local governments are taking gender equality into account in responding to cuts to the grants they get from central government. It concludes with ideas about organizing to challenge decisions that undermine gender equality.

It can be downloaded in colour and black and white versions.
