Press Release - Calling All Local Women!
Employment. Social Security. Caring. Health. Education. Transport. Brexit. Do these affect you, your family and community? What can the Government do to help you?
The SWC (Scottish Women’s Convention) is visiting Cairndale Hotel and Leisure Club, English Street, Dumfries on Friday 17 November 2017 from 11am until 1.30pm Come along and tell us what is happening in your area. This event is free and lunch is provided.
By listening to local women, the SWC is able to provide a unique response on a number of key issues affecting the women of Scotland as we use YOUR views. This means that the Government is able to hear YOUR voice, along with that of other women. YOU are able to have an impact of key policy decisions which affect your day-to-day life.
Agnes Tolmie, SWC Chair says “It is vital that, during this time of change for Scotland, the concerns of women are listened to by politicians. Women are losing their jobs, local services are being cut or withdrawn and women are being asked to contribute more by filling gaps through volunteering. Women account for 50% of Scotland’s adult population, yet decision makers forget the impact on women when drafting policy. The Scottish Women’s Convention provides a vital role in ensuring local women have a voice and a link with political discussion.”
