About us

The Women’s Budget Group is a is independent and not-for-profit membership network consisting of women’s voluntary organisations, academics and policy expert whose aims are to promote a gender equal economy. We do this through conducting in depth analysis of the impact of policy on women. Our analysis has been used to influence policy debates on a national and local level.

We run several projects that work to build the capacity of women’s organisations as well as national and international campaigning organisations and other equality groups.

Find out more about the capacity building work we are doing through our Local Data Project
We are also working on a project to build support for an intersectional Feminist Green New Deal in the UK. Find out more here

Last year we published the final report of the Commission on a Gender- Equal Economy.  Watch this short clip by the Commission which demonstrates how different elements of gender inequality are connected and why we urgently need alternative policies that can help create a caring economy now.
