Consultation

31 May 2019 ~ Transformative policies and practices – Women’s Budget Group Commission on Gender Equality – submission deadline

2nd call for evidence:

Building on our initial call for evidence, we are now seeking examples of policies or practices which have had transformative impacts on gender equality.  By ‘transformative’, we mean policies or practices which have, in a significant way, reduced inequality between women and men. These can be policies at an organisational, local, or national level, including examples from other countries.

Universal Credit and Survival Sex: sex in exchange for meeting survival needs inquiry

The Work and Pensions Committee is calling for evidence  -  from anyone affected or with experience of this issue - about a possible link between  Universal Credit and “survival sex”. The Committee has opened this phase in its Universal Credit inquiry in response  to reports from charities and support organisations that increasing numbers of people—overwhelmingly women—have been getting involved in “survival sex” as a direct result of welfare policy changes. These include the roll-out of Universal Credit.
