To ask the Minister for Women and Equalities, how much her Department has spent on celebrations for International Women's day in each year since 2015.

From April 2017 to present, the Government Equalities Office has spent £3,199 on International Women’s Day celebrations.

In addition, the GEO has taken the opportunity to promote IWD through our communications activity and through any events that happen to take place on or around 9 March.

Due to historic machinery of government changes, GEO does not hold specific spend information for International Women's Day, for the years preceding 2017. Whilst the Department for Education will hold detailed records of transactions from 2015, it will not be able to identify International Women's Day spend.
