Oxfam warmly welcomes the proposed introduction of a public sector duty to promote gender equality as the most significant change in legislation underpinning gender equality since the Equal Pay and Sex Discrimination Acts of the 1970s. In this submission, we address Oxfam’s key concerns, including: the importance of a strategic approach; issues of structural inequality between men and women; the effects of the proposals on men as well as women; equal pay and women experiencing poverty; the importance of gender-disaggregated data; and the process of conducting Gender Impact Assessments.
