Girls in Scotland

As the leading organisation for girls and young women in Scotland, empowering every girl to reach their full potential and speak out about matters that are important to them is at the heart of everything we do. That’s why we’ve produced Girls in Scotland, the largest survey of its kind in Scotland to reveal what it’s really like for girls growing up here.

Check out our new 2020 research

With more than 100 years’ experience we’ve seen first-hand how girls’ lives are changing. For the new Girls in Scotland 2020 survey we asked for the views of over 500 girls and young women aged 7-21 across the country.

Throughout our long history we’ve empowered girls and young women growing up in Scotland and pushed for a more equal future. This research helps us continue this work and brings us closer to helping shape the decisions that impact girls’ lives. Find out more about the challenges girls face and the barriers they come up against when taking action to create a better world.
