I want to stand for something

We’re here to help women in Scotland to get into politics

Scotland’s Women Stand is a movement designed to support and empower women of Scotland to stand for political office.

Through a combination of information and inspiring events, we will bring together a cohort of women and equip 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.

Our 7 Steps are being announced across 2019. You’ll find practical advice and wealth of information on how you can get involved in Scotland’s public life with some exciting announcements about the next phase of the movement coming soon. Subscribe to our updates to hear some of our announcements first and have information and inspiration delivered to your inbox.

Scottish Minister of Older People & Equalities, Christina McKelvie MSP, offers messages of support for the #ScotWomenStand campaign, and to all women of Scotland in our journeys to election.

Councillor Alison Evison, President of CoSLA, offers messages of support for the #ScotWomenStand campaign, and to all women of Scotland in our journeys to election.
