Women and work – call for evidence



The inquiry

We gathered information and promoted awareness of the issue by—

  • holding a round-table session during Trade Union Week (February 2012);
  • leading the Parliament in a debate on Women and Work (June 2012);
  • attending and following the Scottish Government’s summit on women and employment (September 2012); and
  • scrutinising the Draft Budget 2013-14 with a gender perspective (October/November 2012).
