Women and work: what next?

After months of campaigning, discussion and debate, what is arguably the biggest political event of a generation is almost upon us. With just over two weeks to go until the referendum, Close the Gap launched a new working paper Women and work: What comes next in a post-referendum Scotland?at a Constitutional Café event with Engender, Electoral Reform Society Scotland, and Scottish Women’s Aid on Saturday 30 August 2014.The aim of this paper is to provide an overview of the implications for women and work in the context of the independence debate, to describe what needs to happen to effect positive change, and to identify the levers that are available in the event of either outcome.

Gender equality, the referendum and beyond: Constitutional Cafe

Close the Gap are joining forces with our friends at Engender to host a discussion event on women and the referendum. This ‘constitutional café’ will be held at the Scottish Youth Theatre in Glasgow, on 30 August from 10.30-12.30.
