Want a fresh take on the Autumn Budget? Tune into Progressive Economy Forum’s new podcast series “Budget 2018: Progressive Perspectives”

Each episode explores an alternative lens through which we can understand and analyse economic policy.

In this episode, founding chair of the Women’s Budget Group, Professor Susan Himmelweit, talks to PEF about the importance of looking at the Budget and wider economic policy through the lens of gender – not just for women, who have been disproportionately harmed by austerity, but for the economy and society as a whole.
