Cllr Sara Duncan said: “Gender inequalities exist in every area of our society and everyday lives. I hope that this government strategy will be effective in eradicating these inequalities.
“I would also caution the government against complacency on this matter – the strategy must be evaluated and its effectiveness must be tested.
“We must ensure a level playing field for everyone here and have a society which will not allow discrimination of any form.
“The government must do all in its power to ensure that these inequalities are consigned to the dustbin of history.”
