Support the Life Raft for Women’s Equality – Fawcett Society

Fightback Fridays!   see here

Since the 2010 Budget, women have borne the brunt of cuts. In the run up to the 2012 Budget, Fawcett and more than 20 other organisations – including Oxfam, UNISON, and the Child Poverty Action Group are calling on the government to implement our  ‘Life Raft for Women’s Equality’ – a set of targeted policy asks that  would go a long way in softening the worse effects of cuts on women.

 

Support the Life Raft for Women’s Equality

Measures to reduce the deficit are hitting women with a triple jeopardy: cuts to their jobs, cuts to the benefits and services that they rely on more, and a growing likelihood that women will be the ones left ‘filling the gaps’ as state services are withdrawn.
