Our 100th birthday:

Donate or fundraise

For 100 years, The Young Women’s Movement has been Scotland’s national organisation for young women’s feminist leadership and collective action against gender inequality. 

We trace our history back to 1924 when the Scottish Council seceded from the YWCA of Great Britain and formed YWCA Scotland. Although we go by a different name today, we’re proud of everything that we’ve achieved over the last century.

For our 100th birthday in 2024, we’re asking if you can raise £100 to help us continue our work? 

What can £100 pay for?


A young woman to take part in our leadership programmes to nurture empathy and solidarity, think critically, take action, and build movements to lead social change


We can commission a new piece of content for our digital platforms to amplify the voices and artistic talent of young women and girls, linking them to partner organisations, decision makers and activists across Scotland


You are supporting a volunteer researcher on our Status of Young Women in Scotland project who will develop skills to conduct and disseminate innovative, evidence-based and young women-led research


We can deliver one gender equality session to a group of primary school students to give them a deeper understanding of inequality, how it affects them, and ways to challenge it

The money you raise will allow us to continue our work to achieve our vision of a fairer Scotland for young women and girls.
