Welcome

This International Women’s Day, Engender is charting the work done by women across Scotland.

We know much of the work done by women – caring, looking after households, making sure everyone is supported – is often undervalued and invisible. And we know that without this work, the work done by others would not happen.

Use this site to read about women’s work, browse our Twitter feed and learn more about why we are #makingworkvisible.

We also want to hear from you about all the work you’re doing today. Tell us by live-tweeting your day using the #makingworkvisible hashtag, or by leaving us a comment here.
