The Tory-led government spending cuts will hit women the most, especially in the North East and Cumbria, where more women will lose their jobs, women will suffer more from a reduction in services, welfare benefits and tax changes, child poverty will increase.

On International Women’s Day the Northern TUC Women’s Committee are meeting to outline the devastating impact of slashing public spending and to develop the campaign against these cuts.
