This paper aims to raise awareness of the ways in which women are bearing the brunt of economic problems in the UK, and how the labour market, at present, is a precarious environment for many women.

It constitutes the RSA’s submission to the Women’s Budget Group’s Commission on a Gender-Equal Economy.
