4th call for evidence: Social Security and Taxation
At the start of 2019, the Women’s Budget Group launched its Commission on a Gender-Equal Economy, a first-of-its-kind Commission developing a vision of a gender-equal economy, with an accompanying suite of policy recommendations to make gender equality in the UK economy a reality.
Building on a series of calls for evidence on different policy areas, we sought proposals for reform of the current UK Social Security and Taxation system.
We were interested in both policies which were intended to reduce gender inequality, as well as those which had other primary objectives, but which had a positive impact on gender equality.
We asked people to respond to the following questions
- Which policies or practices, that you know of, have had a transformative impact on gender equality?
- What happened as a result of the policy or practice?
- Was the policy or practice implemented at local, regional, national or international level?
- Could the policy or practice be implemented in other contexts? If so, how? If not, why not?
