This panel outlines the gendered context in which the recent austerity programs have been taking place by considering public attitudes toward gender inequality in a time of crisis and the personal background of key female leaders speaking on behalf of "women" during the crisis. It then turns to the impact of the crisis on gender budgeting and childcare.
