Advisory Council on Women and Girls
A new group has been created to advise the Scottish Government on the action needed to tackle gender inequality.
The Advisory Council on Women and Girls will be chaired by Louise Macdonald OBE, Chief Executive of Young Scot. There are members from the third sector, government and business – including three aged under 20 years old.
The remit of the Advisory Council is to:
- Bring attention to inequality, as experienced by women and girls in Scotland today.
- Champion policies that make a meaningful difference, encouraging Scotland to become a beacon for gender equality.
- Be a catalyst for change, providing a challenging voice if progress is slow or ineffective.
