Gender, Inequality and Power Commission

The Gender Institute is pleased to announce the publication of the Gender, Inequality and Power Commission's final report: 'Confronting Gender Inequality'.

The Commission was designed to draw on LSE research and external experts to provide theoretical and empirical knowledge to inform public and policy debates in the UK concerned with understanding and addressing the complex and multidimensional character of inequality and power imbalances between women and men.

Work focused on the four main areas of Economy, Law, Politics, and Media/Culture. In addition to these broad areas, four cross cutting themes of violence, work/life balance, rights, and power were explored.

The Commission is co-directed by Professors Diane Perrons and Nicola Lacey

Listen to Professor Perrons launch the Commission on the podcast of her recent LSE public lecture Gender, Inequality and Power, and her contribution to the Challenge of Economic Inequality to Recovery and Wellbeing: TASC (Think Tank for Social Change) and FEPS (Foundation for European Progressive Studies) Annual Conference, June 2014.  Her talk is available by clicking this link 'Finance, Austerity and Inequality: Toward gender equitable alternatives'.
