Working towards economic progress for women

Angela O'Hagan, Morag Gillespie

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Have we reached a crossroads in Scotland at least with Scottish
Government’s new economic strategy? Will economic policy keep equality at its heart as intended? In the long run, how we measure progress on equality in the Scottish economy has to change because measures like GDP are inadequate for reflecting the lives we live and the roles we perform, paid and unpaid. In the short-term, what can politicians do to put equality at the heart of their plans for economic progress, particularly for the forthcoming general elections? We consider the answer from a gender perspective.
