British women ‘being forced into polygamous relationships’ because law lets them down, campaigners say

‘The government is always perfectly happy to relegate minority women to kangaroo courts and faith-based parallel legal systems’  Maya OppenheimWomen’s Correspondent, The Independent

British women are increasingly being pressured into polygamous relationships or left without child support when relationships break up because UK law does not offer adequate protection to spouses in religious marriages, campaigners have warned.

Can you help us make the case for a gender economy?

2019 has been a tumultuous year. With a General Election on December 12th which will decide not only the next government but our future relationship with the European Union, our future political and economic situation is still uncertain. In these uncertain times, the work of the Women’s Budget Group is more important than ever. We have to continue to make the case for gender equality not only because it is the right thing to do, but because it will result in a more sustainable and resilient economy.
