Scotland’s Women Stand was a 9 month campaign and event at Parliament to support and empower women of Scotland to stand for political office.
Through a combination of information and an inspiring event, we brought together a cohort of women and equipped them with the knowledge they need to take their next steps in politics. Whether it’s standing for office as an MP, or registering to vote, we want to motivate women to get involved and see their voice as an essential part of political life in Scotland.
The #ScotWomenStand campaign culminated at an event for 400 women at The Scottish Parliament on Sep 7th. You can watch the fabulous speakers in the Chamber session above. Photos to come….
