Why women's voices need to be part of the budget process Aug 6: Each year the budgetary process starts in a mooted fashion with the process of pre-budget scrutiny. Just before the Scottish Parliament went into recess the newly formed Finance and Public Administration Committee launched its consultation seeking your views on Scotland’s public finances in 2022-23, how they have been affected by COVID-19 and how the next Scottish Budget should address the need for a fair and equal recovery.

Producing the Living Gender History Podcast Jul 20: Members of SWBG took part in the Living Gender History Podcast episode The Politics of Care in Scotland – listen to the episode

6 challenges to embrace in building a caring, green recovery Apr 13: Last month we launched a paper ‘Challenges for 2021 and beyond’ ahead of the Scottish elections. We called on Scotland’s political parties to respond to the challenges and to commit to invest in an economy that cares. Here we share the six key challenges the politicians must grasp if our recovery is to tackle existing inequality and the climate crisis, while working towards a gender equal economy.

Time to up the ambition for a green care led recovery Mar 9: Today the Scottish Budget will go through stage 3 and, barring the unexpected, will pass into law.
