The Scottish Trades Union Congress (STUC) today welcomed Scottish Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Ann McKechin MP to the STUC Women’s Conference being held in Dundee.
Addressing the conference Ann McKechin said:
“We want to see a society that rewards talent rather than gender, and working alongside the trade union movement we have achieved much – but too many barriers to women remain.
“All of us are impoverished by inequality, and more needs to be done to build a fairer Scotland. Despite progress in the representation of women in Scottish politics, for example, the march of women through institutions is continuing all too sedately, and the ongoing challenge we face is to accelerate change.”
