Dr Wanda Wyporska, Executive Director of The Equality Trust, said:

“We welcome Oxfam highlighting the scandal of entrenched global inequality and the wealth created off the back of some of the poorest women in the world. It’s vital to highlight the role of unpaid care carried out by women and girls, which is as much an issue here in the UK, as it is in other countries. The lack of adequate funding for public services increases the burden borne by women and girls and on all those who have caring responsibilities.”
