More equal than others

December 8, 2015

How not to do equality impact assessment.

  1. Throw together a ragbag of things which might conceivably have a positive impact on women or people with disabilities
  2. Relentlessly ignore anything else, particularly anything which might have a negative effect on women in comparison with men.
  3. Do not, whatever you do, think about things in a joined-up way so that you look at the cumulative impact of a number of smaller changes.
  4. Publish, smugly.

Yes, HM Treasury, I’m looking at you.

Here, by way of a little light relief, is the women’s budget group’s analysis of the Autumn Statement and Spending Review.  I’m not sure what else to say, except Grrrr!  Argh!!
