Answer for Women in all policies

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Women make up 51 per cent of Londoners but are still subject to discrimination, inequality and harassment disproportionately to men. As such I am committed to understanding the experience of women in London and the barriers they face to living full, productive and safe lives.

All of my policies, programmes and strategies give due consideration to our responsibility under the Public Sector Equalities Duty. We gather evidence (through reporting and monitoring, evaluations, data analysis and grant funding) on gender inequalities in poverty and income, employment and business, education, skills, sport, community involvement, transport, housing, health, violence, safety and regeneration. We will continue to do this so that we can monitor progress and identify areas for action.
