Women from throughout Scotland gathered to discuss issues around the implication of Brexit on them, their families and communities as a whole. The SWC organised this event following discussions from women throughout the country, who have expressed concerns about Scotland’s place in the negotiations on the UK leaving the EU and the knock-on effect this decision will have.
The event, held at the Hilton Grosvenor Hotel, Glasgow, on Saturday 28th January was chaired by Agnes Tolmie, SWC Chair. Speakers were Michael Russell MSP, Minister for UK Negotiations on Scotland’s Place in Europe, Amy Haughton from Thompson’s Solicitors, Angela Crawley MP and Kathleen Walker Shaw from the GMB. Following their presentations, delegates took part in a question and answer session as well as roundtable discussions on key issues.
