A Downing St spokesman has clarified that the new Financial Secretary, Nicky Morgan, will report directly to David Cameron on women's issues, rather than to the new Culture Secretary, Sajid Javid.
The role of minister for women and equalities has been split, with Ms Morgan taking on the women's brief and Mr Javid handling equalities.
She will report directly to the Prime Minister on women's issues. She will have an office as Minister for Women, supported by DCMS staff. But with regard to her responsibilities for women, she will report to the Prime Minister.
Sajid Javid will have the ministerial lead on equalities issues and Nicky Morgan will have the lead on women's issues.

General Sir Peter Wall told The Sunday Times the British Army is in a minority of other armies because of the rule and offering all roles to women would make it "look more normal to society".
An MoD spokesman said: "A 2010 review into women serving in combat roles concluded there should be no change to the existing policy and another review will take place before 2018."
