International Women's Day

Last Sunday was International Women's Day and the BBC reported the reaction of politicians in Scotland.

Following recent other initiatives I mentioned here and here Scottish Health Secretary Nicola Sturgeon vowed to tackle domestic abuse and said £44m had been committed to tackle the problem.

Scots Tory leader Annabel Goldie called on Scotland's political leaders to put family back at the top of the agenda and have the debate about how to put family back at the heart of society and how to support families.

Harriet Harman, rather strangely I thought or maybe it was the way it was reported, told delegates at Scottish Labour's annual conference that bank bosses topped the list of treating female employees unfairly saying "The gender pay gap in financial services is worse than in most other sectors."
