Earlier this year (when we thought the action plan was ready to be published), we asked Women’s Budget Group to do a ‘gendered analysis’ of the UK Open Government Action Plan.
They looked at the commitments in th action plan at the time, and gave recommendations to making sure women’s voices are also heard as part of the implementation of commitments.
They also recommended that future action plans should include a commitment for government to conduct and publish Equality Impact Assessments.
You can read the analysis on the Open Government Network website. The analysis has been shared with government officials in DCMS.
Break the Roles
This analysis comes at a timely moment - the OGP recently launched its 'Break the Roles’ campaign to strengthen the gender perspectives in our OGP commitments and increase women’s voices across open government.
