Women's experiences of childcare shared through our survey

This is the second blog in our series by Heather Williams looking at what women told us earlier this year when we conducted a survey to find out more about their local public spending priorities, impact of the cost of living crisis and experiences of child and social care.

Why gender budgeting matters

This month, the convener of the Scottish Women's Budget Group, Angela O'Hagan, appeared on the Scottish feminist policy podcast On The Engender to talk about gender budgeting. The podcast also features voices from SWBG members talking about why they are part of the group.

Equality must be at the heart of Scotland’s budget

In advance of the release of the Draft Scottish Budget, the Scottish Women’s Budget Group is calling for care to be included in the Scottish Government’s planned investment in infrastructure.

She works hard for the money

On Tuesday 7th June, the Scottish Women's Budget Group joined forces with Engender and Close the Gap to hold an event looking at gender budgeting.

Welcome to Scottish Women's Budget Group's new blog

We hope to use this space to share information about budgets and gender budgeting, our events and publications, and our semi-regular meetings. We're part of a vibrant women's sector in Scotland, and we'll be including voices from across the sector on women and the economy.
