No one understands what it’s like to grow up in Scotland better than girls themselves. Our new #GirlsInScotland research gives girls across the country a platform to express their concerns and share the solutions they’d like put in place to create a better future.

Did you know that 54% of all girls said seeing more women who look like them (and who they can relate to) in positions of power would encourage them to take on leadership roles? For more hard-hitting stats like this head to our website.
