Women have played a crucial role in the history of Scotland, yet their contribution has often been overlooked. This study reveals the harsh realities of life for witches, prostitutes, factory hands and bodysnatchers in a misogynist Presbyterian society where women had no personal possessions, no vote and few career options. The final section of the book charts the struggle for women’s rights in the 20th century, and celebrates its heroines.
