The UK may be a developed country, but almost 25 per cent of the population live below the poverty line. Women experience higher levels of poverty than men, just as they do in other parts of the world. Encouraging and supporting poor women to voice their own experiences and speak out to challenge the inequality that they face are vital to overcoming poverty in the UK. Recognising this, Oxfam GB has worked with partner organisations to enable women to meet with and lobby the civil servants and politicians who make decisions that impact on their lives.
