Overview

Women have an unprecedented voice and place in the politics of the new Scotland, with women taking 37% of the seats in the new Scottish Parliament.

The Anthology includes key pieces from writers such as Alice Brown, Aileen Christianson, Katie Cosgrove, Sue Innes, Isobel Lindsay, Ronnie MacDonald, and Tom Nairn.
