Impact of the rising cost of living on women


This inquiry will examine the impact of the rising cost of living on women, as households continue to come under pressure from increased costs.

In February 2023, the Women and Equalities Committee heard from people with disabilities and unpaid carers on how they were managing with cost-of-living increases. That evidence will inform this inquiry.   

The inquiry will consider how the rise in the cost of living could exacerbate existing inequalities and what steps the Government and other stakeholders, including different sectors of the economy, could take in response.

Read the call for evidence and contribute to our inquiry.
