Women and the economy 2015 political hustings. Put your questions to: Priti Patel, Conservative Treasury Spokesperson, Stella Creasy Labour Shadow Spokesperson for Business Innovation and Skills and Liberal Democrat representative.

Our economy has been a key area of focus for the past five years and it is the only game in town in the 2015 General Election. But where are women’s voices in this debate?

There may be more women in work than ever before and the pay gap is closing, but there is no evidence that women are benefitting from the so-called “upturn”.

From apprenticeships to women on boards, public spending cuts and NHS privatisation, how the economy work affects how gender equal our society is. 

The Fawcett Society Women and the Economy hustings is the only place you can be part of a public debate about women and the economy before the general election. 

So that we can put the widest possible variety of questions to the politicians, submit your question in advance to [email protected] with the subject heading 'Fawcett Society Hustings - question submission' or use the hashtag #womenandeconomy.
