Equality has always been a core value for the Scottish Greens, as it is for the whole Green movement. Over many decades we have made progress toward a more equal society, and many barriers have been lowered. There remains far more work to do. Progress toward a more equal society did not come about by magic. It did not come about because of the generosity of governments. It was hard won by people working together, marginalised groups fighting each others’ corners in a spirit of solidarity. That is how we will continue to make progress.
