YWCA Scotland is a feminist organisation and part of a worldwide movement of women leading change. Its vision is a world where every woman can shape her own life journey and fulfil her potential, where the voices of women are heard, respected and celebrated.
YWCA was founded in 1855 by two women in London to mirror the already established and respected YMCA in England. YWCA originally stood for the Young Women’s Christian Association. In Scotland, it is now simply called ‘YWCA’ and a secular movement (i.e. we are open to women of all faiths and none.)See more
