Welcome

Welcome to Engender

Engender is Scotland’s feminist policy and advocacy organisation.

Engender has a vision for a Scotland in which women and men have equal opportunities in life, equal access to resources and power, and are equally safe and secure from harm.

Our funders

Engender receives funding from various organisations, with the Scottish Government Equality Fund as our main grant funder. We also rely on membership payments and donations from supporters which gives us unrestricted funding to spend on our feminist work.

You can find out more information about Engender's finances in our Annual Report.

From our blog

Abortion Rights Round-Up What's been happening with reproductive rights over the past month? Engender members are kept up-to-date with this news through our weekly Friday Feminist Five newsletter, but in this post we've collated an update for non-members too. If you'd like to receive the weekly newsletter you can join Engender as a member here. News from the US continues to cause alarm for defenders of women’s reproductive rights, as we wait for the decision on whether or not Roe v Wade will be effectively overturned by the Supreme Court. While it’s been heartening to see protests, rallies and other actions to defend the right to choose (we particularly liked the New York Magazine’s state-by-state guide to accessing abortions, and the creative legislation in Austin, Texas), the reality of what may happen across the US in a couple of months is really scary.
