swib is delighted to host a debate allowing women business owners and professionals to question Scotland's leading female politicians face to face about Scotland's future.

Given that 18 September 2014 heralds the most important referendum decision in Scotland's political history, this is your opportunity to put your questions to the women at the heart of the debate. Our debate will be chaired by well-known TV presenter, Sally Magnusson.

With ballots before and after the debate, this will be a unique opportunity to directly gauge the views of an important voting audience.

Our Panel

Nicola Sturgeon MSP, Deputy First Minister Scottish National Party

Annabel Goldie MSP, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Johann Lamont MSP, Leader of Scottish Labour Party

Ruth Wishart Journalist, supporter of the Yes Scotland Campaign.
