29 – 30 November 2016

UNISON South West, Taunton


It is a well known fact that measures to reduce the deficit are having a greater impact on women both in terms of cuts to jobs and benefits and services that support women’s everyday lives. There is also a growing likelihood that women will be the ones left filling the gaps as state services are withdrawn. It seems that time appears to be turning back on women’s equality.
