My latest motions to the Scottish Parliament:

Motion S5M-04099: Mary Fee, West Scotland, Scottish Labour, Date Lodged: 17/02/2017

That the Parliament notes that 20 February 2017 marks the 11th annual UN World Day of Social Justice; considers that the social justice agenda must aim to reduce and eradicate all forms of discrimination and inequality that people face every day regarding their age, culture, ethnicity, disability, gender, race and religion; believes that, in relation to gender equality, the global community must redouble its efforts in order to meet the UN aims of empowering women through reducing poverty and promoting development as, at present, six out of ten of the world’s poorest people are women, and notes with regret that the World Economic Forum has estimated that it will take another 118 years to completely eradicate gender inequality across the globe, despite this being a fundamental human right.
