Women’s Budget Group report: The Female Face of Poverty

women's budget group

Poverty is gendered. Women in the UK are slightly more likely to live in poverty than men when this is measured on the usual household basis (21% of adult women, compared to 19% of adult men in 2016-17).

This is from the July 2018 report (pdf) from the Women’s Budget Group  on the causes of poverty among women and the consequences that poverty has on women’s lives.
