Scotland's Women Stand BSL

September 07, 2019 10:12


Linda Fabiani, Deputy Presiding Officer of the Scottish Parliament, welcomes 400 women to the iconic debating chamber at the Scottish Parliament - to hear inspiring women share their stories of activism, campaigning and election, followed by a panel of elected women in conversation about their experiences of differing spheres of politics.

The morning will host a unique all-women line-up of speakers sharing their experiences of politics in Scotland and the unique rewards and challenges they've met, with party politics left at the door for the day. 
The morning's keynote speaker is equality campaigner and powerhouse Talat Yaqoob, founder and director of Women 50:50, Scotland's campaign for 50% representation of women in Parliament. We'll also be joined for a keynote speech by Christina McKelvie, Minister for Older People and Equalities.
