Osborne's cuts are 'worst attack on equality for generations'
"Up to twice as many women as men will lose their jobs as a result of public sector spending cuts, in what critics described yesterday as the "biggest attempt to turn back the clock on women's equality for generations".
"An analysis for The Independent suggests about 350,000 women will leave the public sector over the next four years, compared with 150,000 men.
"And there were warnings last night that cuts to childcare allowances, also announced in George Osborne's Comprehensive Spending Review, will mean that many will not return to the workforce, even as the economy recovers."
