As the 2017 International Women's Day global theme calls on us to "be bold for change," Professor Colette Fagan, Dr. Nina Teasdale and Dr. Helen Norman from the University of Manchester (UK) take stock of the UK’s gender-related policy measures. They argue that progress towards gender equality has been uneven and often too slow, and there is a risk that the long-established gender rights and gender equality machinery will be weakened or stripped away following the UK's decision to leave the European Union.
