Inspiring Women: Women and Voting

Wed 18th September 2013
6pm - 7.30pm

Engender Inspiring Women Event Series

Women and Voting
Speaker: Juliet Swann
Campaigns and Research Officer
Electoral Reform Society

Women’s votes will be crucial in the referendum on Scottish independence next year. Polls indicate that women are more undecided and disengaged from mainstream politics than men.

• What kind of factors have driven women’s voting patterns historically?

• As we look to the referendum, are there implications for those seeking to encourage Scottish women to have their say?

• How does this link to gender issues on the table at present in Scotland?

Join us for an evening of discussion and light refreshments. To book please contact or call 0131 558 9596
