The Scottish Suffragettes, Paperback Book

The Scottish Suffragettes Paperback

Part of the Scots' Lives S. series


An inspiring look at the remarkable women who fought so tirelessly for equality.

Using new material, this study moves away from the ardent activists in London and focuses on the campaign for the vote for women in Scotland.

Non-militant 'suffragist' groups were found countrywide -- from Ayrshire to Orkney -- and involved thousands of Scottish women of all ages and from all backgrounds.

Unlike their attention-grabbing counterparts the Suffragettes, these women laboured not only for the right to vote, but also for the right to higher education, to separate legal existence from their husbands, and to be actively involved in local government.

This is the story of individual Scottish suffragists, resolute and passionate women whose lives have been 'hidden from history', but who now receive the recognition they deserve.
