Malicious Mischief? Women’s Suffrage in Scotland
Wed 25 August 2021 at 7pm
Join archivist Jocelyn Grant on Zoom for a free talk about the women’s suffrage movement in Scotland, looking primarily at the period before 1918.
Drawing on the archives of the National Records of Scotland (NRS), Jocelyn will show how this period is represented in criminal case files, government reports, diaries and newspapers. In particular the talk will cover the difference between the suffragists, and the suffragettes; notable individuals involved in the movement such as Lady Francis Balfour, Ethel Moorhead, Fanny Parker; and the recent online resource (Profiles (nrscotland.gov.uk) produced by NRS, giving access to many of the archival files held within the archives of the National Records.
