Why does tax matter for equality between women and men?

The APPG on Responsible Taxation and the Women’s Budget Group invite you to:

The Wilson Room, Portcullis House, SW1A 2JR

11.30 am Tuesday 1 May 2018

A fair tax system is critical to ensuring gender equality and tackling poverty. Tax policy enables governments to influence the economy in ways that may impact differently on men and women because of differences in their economic position, caring responsibilities and decision-making power. Tax also provides revenue that is used to invest in infrastructure, public services and social security. Women, because of their caring roles, often are, or end up, more dependent on such services and transfers than men.


Join us as we discuss the ways in which tax matters for equality between women and men in the UK and around the world

Speakers include:

Sue Himmelweit – Women’s Budget Group

Liz Nelson - Tax Justice UK

Chaired by Margaret Hodge MP

More speakers to be confirmed ahead of the event.
