In a context of widening inequalities, it is more than ever important that the alignment of government budgets and social justice should be improved. Gender budgeting seeks to secure this though a focus on how budgets impact on gender equality and the well-being of women, in particular women who also experience other inequalities, such as those related to class, ethnicity, age, disability and sexual orientation. Professor Elson's talk will draw on UK experience with gender budgeting, focusing on the different and changing roles of government and civil society; the implications of equalities law; and research conducted by the UK Women’s Budget Group on the distributional impact of budget measures. She will highlight lessons learned that may have relevance to Canada.
