About us

We put feminism into economics and economics into feminism.

The UK Women’s Budget Group is the UK’s leading feminist economics think tank

We are the only UK-wide think tank focused on exploring the economy through a gendered lens and we are the leading feminist organisation dedicated to the economy. 

We are a research, advocacy and training organisation advancing gender equality in policymaking through feminist approaches to economics. Working nationally and internationally, we build and exchange the evidence, data, knowledge, capacity and will for change.

We occupy a unique position, acting as a link between feminist academics, the women’s voluntary sector and think tanks and policymakers. We draw on a network of pro-bono experts from academia, the new economics and the women’s movements, alongside a professional staff team, who are all essential to our work. We work in partnership with our sister organisations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
