The APPG on Responsible Taxation and the Women’s Budget Group invite you to this event.

A fair tax system is critical to ensuring gender equality and tackling poverty. Tax policy enables governments to influence the economy in ways that may impact differently on men and women because of differences in their economic position, caring responsibilities and decision-making power. Tax also provides revenue that is used to invest in infrastructure, public services and social security. Women, because of their caring roles, often are, or end up, more dependent on such services and transfers than men.

Join us as we discuss the ways in which tax matters for equality between women and men in the UK and around the world.

Speakers include:
Sue Himmelweit – Women’s Budget Group
Liz Nelson – Tax Justice UK
Anneliese Dodds MP – Labour
Sophie Walker – Women’s Equality Party
Chaired by Margaret Hodge MP

More speakers to be confirmed ahead of the event.
