Welcome to YWCA Scotland - The Young Women's Movement

YWCA Scotland is a feminist organisation and part of the biggest young women’s movement in the world. We encourage girls and young women to challenge inequality and become their own leaders.

We are working on a shiny new website, blog and branding and can't wait to share it with you soon. Be the first to hear what we're up to by following us on TwitterFacebook and Instagram @youngwomenscot

#FairForWomen: Tweet us on Friday 6 March


The #FairForWomen Twitter Chat is a celebration of two of our favourite events - International Women’s Day and Fairtrade Fortnight. We’d like to get people thinking and chatting about the many ways in which fair trade, women’s rights and sustainable development are connected.

Please download the #FairForWomen social media toolkit here for more on info on how to get involved.
