‘Women are bearing the brunt of socio economic cuts in all their forms’, writes Emma Patterson-Bennett in a Brexit LawNI Project blog on Brexit and women.
The article says that women have been impacted more than men with the changes to socio-economic conditions such as welfare, austerity and cuts to public spending in Northern Ireland over the last number of years.
It discusses Brexit and women in relation to their socio-economic rights, human rights and equality, in particular in reference to:
- Universal Credit
- Bedroom tax
- Child tax credits
- The Good Friday Agreement
