At today’s Treasury Questions I highlighted how the real term cuts to tax credits proposed by the Coalition Government in the Autumn Statement, would hit working people on modest incomes hard – and also disproportionately affect women.

Over two thirds (71%) of those receiving tax credits are in work and according to House of Commons research, an estimated 80% of the further cuts will be felt by women.  This from a Government who claim to be helping working families.

This follows four years of budgets which have taken six times more from women – even though women earn less. The Tories and Lib Dems have chosen to hit millions of working families again whilst keeping their tax cuts for millionaires.

I was pleased to be able to attend the International Women's Day event at Kings Church on Sunday.  It was a chance to celebrate the work that women do in the community.

International Women’s Day is also a day to celebrate how far we’ve come in the fight for women’s equality, but also recognise how much more there is to do.
