Venue: Iris Murdoch Building, University of Stirling

The University of Stirling welcomes you to Women in Politics: Reflections on the referendum and beyond.

What difference did the Scottish referendum on independence make to women’s participation in political life in Scotland? What does the future hold? What barriers are there to women’s participation in public civic and political life and how can we overcome them?" Please join us and a panel of experts from civic and political life in Scotland to debate these issues and map out a brighter future for women in Scotland.

Speakers include:
The Rt Hon Dame Anne McGuire MP, Labour Party;
Roseanna Cunningham MSP, SNP and Cabinet Secretary (tbc); 
Maggie Chapman, Scottish Green Party;
Juliet Swann, Electoral Reform Society;
Emma Ritch, Engender; 
Carolyn Leckie, Women for Independence;
Ann Henderson, STUC (tbc)

This event is part of the annual lecture series Women In Public Life  hosted by the Centre for Gender and Feminist Studies and is co-hosted by the Centre on Constitutional Change to mark International Women's Day in 2015.
