About

JANET FENTON

I am a Quaker feminist from Scotland, and I lived in Ireland when my children were small. My working life was in the theatre and community arts and community development.

When I retired I worked part time as Co-ordinator of the Edinburgh Peace and Justice Centre (P&J) , and collaborated with others on issues around nuclear weapons and International Humanitarian Law, and also engaged in activity with the new devolved Scottish Parliament. I actively support Scottish independence in order to create a peaceful and nuclear free Scotland. I am a member of Trident Ploughshares.

I have lived in community at various times in my adult life and I lived and worked for two years in a therapeutic community as a co-worker.

I currently holds positions as:

Co-opted member, Northern Friends Peace board (Quakers)

Vice Chair, Scottish Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (SCND)

Secretary, Scottish Parliamentary Cross Party Group for Nuclear Disarmament

National Steering Group member, Scottish Scrap Trident Coalition

Parliamentary Liaison, Scottish branch of WILPF on Women Peace and Security.
