Why in this age do some people still not get equality?!!
With the cuts announced across the public sector and the blatant attacks on the poor, women and disabled why do some people still not get the need for equality? Shouldn’t we all be promoting equality ? As the cuts begin to bite the young, the old, the disabled, the sick and the poor let us not forget the power of Equality Impact Assessments as tools to ensure no groups are disadvantaged on equality grounds by any local authority’s decision or activities.Let’s use EIAs to campaign against jobs and service cuts in redundancies, restructuring and outsourcing proposals! What a great community organising tool!
