The booking deadline for this event has passed. If you would like to attend, please email info@engender.org.uk.

Engender, Scottish Women’s Aid, Close the Gap and Scottish Refugee Council invite you to join us for a discussion of our joint position paper on the gender inequality of ‘welfare reform’.

‘Welfare reform’ directly penalises women. Of cuts totalling £14.9 billion since 2010, 74% has been taken from women’s incomes.

What can the Scottish Government do to address this gender impact in its response to 'welfare reform'?

The evening is kindly hosted by Jayne Baxter MSP.

Date and time: 6pm – 7.30pm, Wednesday 2 April
Place: Committee Room 3, Scottish Parliament

Tea and coffee will be provided.

The booking deadline for this event has passed. If you would like to attend, please email info@engender.org.uk.
