Gender Equality: The Pay Gap and BeyondUnderstanding Society Meetings

Understanding Society, the UK Household Longitudinal Study, is hosting a timely debate to discuss the unfolding momentum on gender equality. New evidence using Understanding Society reveals the impact of part time working on pay, how parenthood shapes gender role attitudes towards employment, and the effects of divorce on gender differences in housing futures. There will also be a poster session enabling delegates to engage with researchers on specific topics.

Michaela Benzeval, Director, Understanding Society (tbc), Professor Susan Harkness, Director, Understanding Society Policy Unit, Monica Costa Dias, Associate Director, Institute for Fiscal Studies Research and Economist, Centre for Economics and Finance, University of Porto, Fran Bennett, active member of Women's Budget Group and Senior Research and Teaching Fellow, Department of Social Policy and Intervention, University of Oxford, Sam Smethers, Director, Fawcett Society, Helen Wright, Founder, employment solutions
