A new report from Engender ‘Sex and Power’ sets out the extent of men’s over-representation in positions of authority and influence in Scotland. In 2017, women still have unequal access to power, decision-making and participation throughout all areas of public life, which undermines gender equality. Of the 3029 positions of power and authority in Scotland identified in the report, 73% are filled by men.
