Imbalance in Political Representation

Women’s political participation is at an all-time low. Currently, women represent only 29% in Scotland. Local councils and parliament can only be as efficient, relevant, and vibrant when everyone is effectively represented. Capable members of Parliament and councillors elected should be drawn from all backgrounds and experiences to reflect their communities.

“There are roughly 20,000 Councillors in Britain and approximately 13,000 of them are men with equal to none New Scots diverse women. This needs to change, and it is not going to until women have positions and can make the change in May 2022 during local Government and other future elections taking place across Scotland”

Are Olympic Games Impartial?

Transwomen and women are entitled to a fair game in sports and all other areas. Now an open-ended policy that will allow anyone to self-identify as a woman is proposed.  How will the government protect genuine transwomen and women who require protection when self-ID is open to anyone who feels they want to be a woman, regardless of whether they are gender reaffirmed. The legislation is created specifically to safeguard and protect particular individuals not to expose the most vulnerable people in society to danger.
