Women and Equalities
Departmental Responsibilities: Males
Lords
To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they intend to appoint a Minister for Men and Boys; and if not, why not.
Answered on: 26 June 2018

The Government has no current plans to appoint a Minister for Men and Boys. The fact that we have Ministers for Women but no Minister for Men does not reduce our commitment to ensuring equality for everyone. It simply acknowledges that, even in 2018, the UK has not yet reached full gender equality and that we need to deal with some very specific and deep-rooted problems.

We are and will remain committed to ensuring gender equality works for men and boys, as well as for women and girls.
