The decisions made by local councils have a significant impact on women’s lives, from allocating spending on education and leisure, to deciding how and where public transport runs.
Of the 1,223 local councillors in Scotland, only four are BME women.
We want to help women around Scotland find out more about local councils, and we want to make sure local councillors know how to represent the women in their areas.
So, together with Women 5050, we've created resources which can be used by women across Scotland to explore what powers local councils have, and how we can have influence them
The workshop packs can be used by a group you're already a part of, with some pals, or just by yourself.
Order a free pack by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can download and print the resources yourself below.
