Promoting Women for Independence: Latest Updates

It has never been more important to stay up-to-date with news affecting Scottish independence, gender equality and social justice.

Upcoming Events

We wouldn't be able to do it without you.

We promote the causes of Scottish independence and other constitutional changes likely to contribute to greater democracy and home-rule for Scotland, gender equality and social justice. We do this through a network of individuals and organised groups across Scotland, and by working to increase women’s political engagement, nationally and in communities.
