Welcome to Engender

Engender is Scotland’s feminist 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

GUEST POST: WHT the **** During this 16 Days of Activism On Violence Against Women - and with high profile #metoo stories appearing in the courts and the media - we continue to hear stories of harassment and abuse of women and girls. This guest post, from an author who wishes to remain anonymous, explores the issues of power, privilege, and 'wandering hand trouble'.CONTENT NOTE: this blog describes instances of sexual assault and harassment. Back when I was a young woman, when it was described as ‘wandering hand trouble’ (WHT) for short, we were taught that sexual assault and harassment were just what happened.
