Abstract

Ellie Mae MacDonald explains that women are disproportionately hit by the UK government's austerity policies. She argues that many government policies, though seemingly gender-neutral, have profoundly gendered impacts. In particular, changes to Universal Credit and cuts to services and public-sector jobs have increased the number of women living in poverty relative to men.
