The Welsh Brexit blog aims to inform and encourage constructive debate and analysis on issues relating to Wales and the UK's exit of the European Union.While no credible definition of the EU could be stretched to ‘feminist’, it has indeed been active in the area of women’s rights and gender equality since the early days of European integration.

Brexit looms large for equality actors across the UK who have used the EU’s gender equality provisions to promote their domestic agendas. While this was not unique to the devolved nations, Brexit will certainly ring different changes across the UK.

Research, debate and activism must acknowledge the territorial dimension to gender equality in the UK, as essential to securing progress towards social justice across the UK after Brexit.
