Stories of inspiring young women sought

THE Young Women’s Movement is seeking nominations from Dumfries and Galloway for its ninth annual 30 Under 30 list.

Scotland’s national organisation for young women and girls’ leadership and rights established the list in 2016 to address the lack of diverse representation on other 30 Under 30 lists. It seeks to celebrate young women, girls and non-binary people in Scotland who are making change in their lives, communities or in society.

Each year since its launch, the list has showcased some of Scotland’s most inspiring young artists, activists, carers, volunteers and trail-blazers from across the country.

Jenni Snell, CEO of The Young Women’s Movement, said: “In a climate of increased misogynistic rhetoric and challenging times for young women, our annual 30 Under 30 campaign is a much needed chance to celebrate and recognise the positive impact that young women, girls and non-binary people are having across Scotland. Young women are at the heart of everything we do at The Young Women’s Movement, and it is a privilege to once again hear and celebrate the incredible impact that they have in their communities and in society through this project.”

Nominations can be submitted until Monday July 1 at, where more information can also be found. Self-nominations are also welcomed, and the team is hoping to see stories from a wide range of age groups, parts of Scotland and areas of life.
