National Council - Womanifesto Economy 1

This is your opportunity to help create economic policy for Scotland.  An economy that performs as well for women as it does for men.  Join us in Edinburgh at the first of our two Womanifesto National Councils on the economy. It will be thought provoking and challenge Scotland to be at its best.





Our speakers include some of Scotland's most informed and talented women including 

  • Emma Ritch who will discuss how current economic policy is built around men's lives and what one that included women might look like.
  • Angela O'Hagan will give us a taster around gendered budgeting and then lead us in workshops which will be informative and with which you can add your ideas.
  • Ruth Watson who started #KeepScotlandTheBrand will give us a campaign update.
  • Lesley Orr will speak about Ahed Tamimi and how you you can get involved in supporting her.  
  • Mairi Tulbure will give us an quick update on our Womanifesto so far.
  • All of you - we will have our usual and ever popular Open Mic time.
