unstar this property answer text <p>No one should suffer unfair treatment because of their gender. Every year International Men’s Day offers an opportunity to highlight how outcomes for men and boys can be improved and to talk about some of the important work going on every day across Government to do this.</p><p> </p><p>The work ranges from the introduction of shared parental leave, which allows men to take time away from the workplace and bond with their new children, benefitting that crucial long-term relationship for both parent and child, to our programme tackling LGBT bullying in schools which seeks to protect those who may be victimised by outdated and stereotypical ideas of what it means to be a ‘real man’.</p><p> </p><p>Government is also working with local authorities to ensure their suicide prevention plans support more men and, in the Domestic Abuse Bill, we propose to create a statutory definition of domestic abuse that makes clear men also can be victims of this abhorrent crime.</p><p> </p><p>As with International Women’s Day in March every year, the Government Equalities Office does not coordinate or facilitate activities to be undertaken by other Government Departments.</p><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties and Public Bodies) regulations introduced mandatory gender pay gap reporting in 2017 to large public sector employers in England and non-devolved authorities. The threshold of 250 employees was determined following a public consultation and mirrors the requirements for employers in the private and voluntary sectors. The employee threshold and other aspects of the reporting metrics is under review to assess their effectiveness in exposing the causes of the pay gap in individual organisations and employers’ progress in tackling them. We will use this evidence to consider changes to the reporting legislation, consulting on any proposed amendments by 2021.</p><p> </p><p>Equal pay statements are not required outside of Scotland and the policy is therefore not subject to review by central Government. However, in 2020 we will review the enforcement of equal pay legislation more broadly, to ensure it is working as effectively as possible.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>We do not plan to do one single review of the Gender Equality Roadmap and, therefore, there are no terms of reference. Instead, we are constantly working across government to monitor progress against commitments made in the Roadmap. Next year, we will publish our one year on progress report. We will also publish the second release of our annual Gender Equality Monitor; we continue to engage with stakeholders on this, to understand which measures are most important and as we develop a more interactive tool.</p> more like this

As part of the development of the roadmap the Minister for Women and Equalities engaged with ministers across government, including the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, on a range of issues related to gender equality.</p> more like this
