Get involved

Scotland Women Stand, Scottish Parliament, Saturday 7th September

Scotland's Women Stand will take place at the Scottish Parliament on Saturday 7th September - a full day programme for women who are looking to get more involved in politics and participatory democracy. It's open to all women in Scotland. The event will comprise a 400-woman-strong takeover of the Scottish Parliament chamber in the morning, as elected women from all spheres of government discuss and share their stories of running for elected office. There will be a networking lunch and the afternoon comprises of workshop sessions that will actively explore women's path to political office and participation in democracy more deeply.

The entire day will be focussed entirely on women in politics and democracy. This is a unique opportunity to come together and create direct action on gender equality of representation, inclusion in politics and participation at all levels. We are committed to being fully inclusive of women from all backgrounds and making the event fully accessible.

Scotland Women Stand is run by The Parliament Project and YWCA - The Young Women’s Movement.
