Women's suffrage in Scotland

O'Connor, Carole2019
Books, Manuscripts
This is a lively exploration into the determined Scottish women of the predominantly Victorian and Edwardian periods. Their fight and determination for gender equality to achieve votes for women in a male dominated society. Discover some of the antics these women embarked on, and judge for yourself if they were too militant! What tragedies they were dealt, and the friendships that developed! Explore individual areas of Scotland's landscape and journey through the cities and towns, and observe the secrets and shame of how women were often treated, at home, in educational establishments, workplace and by the law. Learn why the women fought against the system through the years. They suffered immense hardship, but was this the beginning of courageous and strong Scottish women fighting for what they believed in, and onwards to suffrage.
