Women Count: A casebook on gender responsive budgeting
The last few years have been an exciting time of growth and change for the Women’s Budget Group.
- Our ground-breaking intersectional analysis, produced with the Runnymede Trust, on the impact of austerity has highlighted how the poorest BME women have been the hardest hit by cuts and changes to tax/benefits and services.
- Our report on Brexit, with the Fawcett Society, has shown how women are likely to lose out as workers, consumers and users of public services.
- We have worked with the End Violence Against Women Coalition (EVAW) and Surviving Economic Abuse to analyse the risk that Universal Credit poses to survivors of financial abuse.
- And we have published a major report on the causes and consequences of women’s poverty, the first of a series of reports co-produced with women’s organisations in Coventry.
But our work is not limited to the UK. WBG plays an active role in international debates on Gender Responsive Budgeting (GRB) and we have presented at workshops, conferences, seminars and training events all over the world.
We are frequently contacted by people wanting to set up a Women’s Budget Group in their own country. Over the past 12 months we have put together a casebook and website based on our history and experiences to help support groups working on GRB.
Join us as we celebrate our successes, and showcase our new resources.
