This scorecard tracks the Welsh government’s progress towards advancing women’s rights and gender equality between 2020 and 2022 in six policy areas: Fair Finance, Caring Responsibilities, Global Women’s Rights, Equal Representation and Leadership, Tackling Gender Health Inequalities, and Ending Violence Against Women and Girls.
The scorecard examines the official statements, legislation, policies and practice for each policy area and the evidence gathered from interviews and published statistics. A traffic light system (red, amber and green) is used to rate the government progress in each area.
The areas of Fair Finance and Caring Responsibilities have seen regression from amber to red, which partly was influenced by the pandemic and cost of living crisis.
There has been little progress on Tackling Gender Health Inequalities, which remains red, and there are policies hindering the effort to End Violence Against Women and Girls. However, progress to amber has been made on Global Women's Rights and Equal Representation and Leadership.
