The Women’s Budget Group ( WBG ) is an independent organisation bringing together individuals from academia, non-governmental organisations and trades unions to promote gender equality through appropriate economic policy.

In all our work, we ask the question: ‘Where do resources go, and what impact does resource allocation have on gender equality?’ The impact that government expenditure can have on women’s everyday lives, especially women experiencing poverty, is of particular concern to us. 

The WBG aims to not only encourage, but assist the government in using gender analysis to improve its economic policy making. The WBG also advocates specific policies. The work of the WBG is focussed at the UK level, but it has links with a group that has a similar aim for Scotland, and with both NGOs and intergovernmental organisations that promote gender budgeting internationally.
