Join the Women’s Budget Group to discuss the Chancellor’s Budget at the London School of Economics.
We know that women and men continue to be differently situated in the economy with different groups of women differently and disproportionately impacted by economic policy. The new Conservative government has promised to ‘level up’ deprived areas and increase public spending. At the same time Government departments have been told to make cuts of up to 5%, suggesting austerity may not be over.
- How will these announcements impact on different groups of women in the economy?
- Will they help or hinder gender equality in the UK?
- Will spending include the spending on social infrastructure needed to support women?
- What will be the impact on Brexit on the Chancellor’s decisions?
Join us on the 11th March at LSE’s new Alumni Centre to find out. We anticipate the timings of the day to be as follows:
- 12:30pm – 1:30pm: Budget viewing
- 1:30pm – 2:15pm: Light lunch served
- 2:15pm – 3:00pm: Join us for ongoing discussions about the budget and gender responsive budgeting with students from the LSE Department of Gender Studies.
