In our parliament and local councils, on the board of public board, and in almost all aspects of public life, women do not have equal representation, despite making up over half of the population.

The Women 5050 campaign, working with Engender, is hosting the first national conference on women's political representation in Scotland. Join us for an inspiring and enlightening conference which will get to the heart of why women are not afforded equal opportunities in public life, and how we can campaign for change.

With great speakers including politicians, commentators and international experts, workshops on the technical aspects of quotas and electoral systems, and opportunities to help shape gender equality campaigning in Scotland, this is a day not to be missed.

See the full agenda here.

Following the conference, you'll have the chance to join us for a 'Comedy and Cupcakes' fundraiser for the Women 5050 Campaign, in a nearby venue.

The venue is fully accessible. Please let us know if you have any additional needs when you make the booking and we will do our best to accommodate them.
