First minister's national advisory council on women and girls

The National Advisory Council on Women and Girls (NACWG) exists to advise the First Minister on what’s needed to tackle gender inequality in Scotland.


NACWG acts as a champion for positive progress and policies where these are making a meaningful difference to women and girls’ lives; and encouraging Scotland to build on any success to become a beacon for gender equality.

Our Manifesto

For generations, our history has been written by one gender.

One perspective, one vision, one half of the population.

Half of history is missing.

For years, we’ve been striving for change.

But now is the time to change for good.

To design a future where gender inequality is a historical curiosity.

With the voices of everyone we want to create a Scotland where we’re all equal – with an equal future.

Together, we are generation equal.
