Oxfam paper: ‘A Gender Perspective on 21st Century Welfare Reform’

In October 2010, Oxfam published a discussion paper on ‘A Gender Perspective on 21st Century Welfare Reform’ by Janet Veitch with assistance from Fran Bennett.

This paper is a response to the coalition government’s consultation paper, 21st Century Welfare. It provides a gender analysis of the potential impact of the welfare reform proposals, particularly on women living in poverty and in receipt of benefits / tax credits, and highlights the potential negative impact on women which has not been adequately addressed by the government.
