Gender equality and the empowerment of women are United Nations Millennium Development Goals in their own right. They are also critical to the delivery of other key development goals including in education and health. It would therefore be right for an independent Scotland to put gender equality at the heart of its development work.
The present Scottish Government would ensure that policies put in place will be in line with international commitments and recognised good practice on gender equality.
