The Commission on a Gender Equal - Economy is seeking examples of innovative and transformative policies and practices relating to the provision and funding of public services.
We’re interested in hearing about public services at both the local and national level: their current shortcomings, and strategies to improve them, including examples from other countries. We are interested in the provision of care services (such as childcare, social care, and health care) and services related to violence against women, but also in other services that have an impact on gender equality, such as education and training, public transport, youth clubs, libraries, and police and justice services. This list is by no means exhaustive.
We welcome submissions from communities and grassroots women’s groups and organisations, as well as from think tanks, trade unions, academics, civil society organisations, business, and the public sector at all levels. We are keen to gather examples from a variety of levels – local, regional, national, and international.
If you don’t think you’ll have time to make a formal submission but are keen to feed in – do still get in touch! We’d be happy to chat over the phone if easier.
