Engender works to make Scotland a fairer, safer place where women can flourish and contribute to both the social and market economies with dignity, freedom and justice.

To this end we seek to increase women’s power and influence; make visible the impact of sexism on women and on Scotland’s social, economic and political development; and support people, organisations and our government to make equality a reality.

Articulate This project aims to provide opportunities for women to share their experience and understanding of intra-Christian sectarianism in Scotland. Our purpose is to generate a gendered perspective on sectarianism and increase awareness amongst community groups, partners working on sectarianism and women’s sector organisations. There will be three main areas of activity:

Partnership working with other CSU funded organisations to develop an understanding of women’s experiences and understanding of sectarianism in their communities.

Facilitated group work with women using participatory research techniques to provide women with a safe space in which to reflect on their views and experiences.

Engender will also be working with Urbancroft to develop a film with young women in Glasgow. The film will then be taken around Scotland to form part of discussions on exploring gender and sectarianism.
