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

Free period products, when and where we need them In this blog, Engender's Communications and Engagement Manager, Alys Mumford, talks about our continuing work to ensure access to free period products.A common trope seen in film and TV is a woman being caught short in a nightclub toilet and being met with dozens of new friends proffering tampons and pads. And while I do have experience on both sides of this scene, I also have memories of sneaking a pad up the sleeve of my school jumper when going to the loo, wearing a hoodie tied round my waist on a freezing day in case I was leaking, using a code word to talk about tampons on holiday (‘cereal bars’ in case you’re wondering, and no I can’t remember why), and stressing out when a borrowed tampon had an applicator which I’d never used before.
