Poverty Alliance briefing for International Women’s Day – March 2023

This year the theme for International Women’s Day is embracing equity to build a more diverse, equitable and inclusive society. Realising women’s social and economic rights through action to tackle poverty and financial insecurity must be a core aspect of this ambition.

This briefing provides an overview of the gendered nature of poverty in Scotland. It also highlights key pieces of ongoing Poverty Alliance work in the realm of women’s poverty including our joint research with the Scottish Women’s Budget Group into women’s experiences of the cost of living crisis; ongoing research into improving Child Maintenance Services; and the campaign for the real Living Wage and Living Hours.
