Scottish Independence: A Feminist Response by Cat Boyd and Jenny Morrison (Paperback) (ISBN: 9780992739249)

"... a well-argued feminist case for independence." Vickky Allan, Sunday Herald

"Accessible, freshly written and informative... Its most distinctive and welcome element is its new strategy for Scottish collectivist feminism." Professor Bridget Fowler, University of Glasgow

“Timely and tightly argued...this is a serious contribution both to the referendum debate and the literature of ‘fourthwave’ feminism.” Neil Davidson, senior lecturer in sociology, University of Glasgow

There have been numerous high profile books for and against independence. But so far, none has focused directly on the question of gender. In this accessible and daring book, two leading young feminist activists turn their attentions to Scotland and Britain. This book:

Looks at the exclusion of women from Scotland’s national story

Examines the contemporary relevance of Scottish feminist history, and the challenges it faces today

Uncovers Scotland’s record on violence against women

Shows how British militarism and economic policy damages women’s lives

Presents positive alternatives for after 2014.

Cat Boyd is a trade union activist. She is also the co-founder and joint spokesperson for the Radical Independence Campaign.

Jenny Morrison is completing a PhD on women’s involvement in the referendum at the University of Glasgow.
