The Scotland’s Women Stand event is on at the Scottish Parliament today, Saturday 7 September 2019.
The event aims to bring together women of all ages, backgrounds, political affiliations and none, to a day full of inspiration, information and motivation, to explore their political purpose and path.
It is part of positive change towards the goal of gender equal political representation, and is a key event as part of the Parliament’s 20th Anniversary programme.
There will be also be a local element to the event, with four regional hubs watching the Chamber session and taking part in a Parliament Project workshop.
The event aims to build opportunities for women to meet each other and for organisations to engage with women in order to support their democratic ambitions.
