The cost-of-living crisis has resulted in increasing harm for protected characteristic groups across the UK, particularly women.

Women still face a prevalent income gap, are expected to bear the majority of domestic and caring responsibilities and are at greater risk of poverty.

Join chair, Lisa Dando and our expert panel to discuss how the cost-of-living crisis negatively affects women, how intersections of identity affect women’s experiences through this time, and what we as a society can do to further support women.


Panel Chair: Lisa Dando, BWC Director

Lisa has been the Director of Brighton Women’s Centre for over 10 years. The charity provides gender specific and trauma-informed support for women with multiple vulnerabilities across Sussex.
