Women’s Budget Group and Fawcett Society report: Exploring the Economic Impact of Brexit on Women

This is from the March 2018 report (pdf) by the Women’s Budget Group and the Fawcett Society on the economic impact of Brexit on women.

The report recommends that the Government should:

  • Ensure that current legal rights and protections for people in the UK cannot be changed without appropriate parliamentary scrutiny and involvement of citizens and civil society
  • Consult widely with women’s organisations and similar civil society organisations
  • Use sex-disaggregated statistics as standard and analyse for distributional effects across a variety of groups, workers and households
  • Ensure that gender experts (including gender-aware economists) are appointed to work on technical teams.
